Minneapolis—September 15, 2011— Walden University has announced the winners of its 2011 Scholars of Change video contest, which features 12 Walden students, alumni and future students demonstrating how they are putting the university’s mission of effecting positive social change into action. Current students and alumni winners received $2,500, and future students were awarded $2,500 scholarships to Walden. All winners also received $2,500 each to donate to their favorite charities.
The Scholars of Change program began in 2009 when Walden invited students and alumni to submit short videos showing how they were applying their Walden education and experiences to bring about positive social change in their local communities and around the globe. This is the first year Walden expanded eligibility to include select international countries as well as future students.
“The Scholars of Change initiative demonstrates how members of the Walden community can put their knowledge to use for the greater good,” said Jonathan Kaplan, president of Walden University. “Through their videos, these individuals inspire and empower others to make a difference.”
The 2011 Scholars of Change and their designated charities are:
