SPRINGFIELD — Springfield College has partnered with Behavioral Health Network Inc. (BHN) in providing employee grants to full- and part-time employees of BHN who are enrolled in either undergraduate, graduate, doctoral, or certificate of advanced graduate study programs at Springfield College.
“BHN is excited to partner with Springfield College to support our dedicated staff by providing them with an affordable way to obtain a high-quality degree,” BHN President and CEO Steve Winn said. “The opportunity to advance their careers in a way that is flexible to their work schedule will benefit both our staff and the overall quality of care we can provide for those we serve as a behavioral-health organization.”
BHN employees are eligible to receive scholarships, which have been established by Springfield College to support its members being educated for leadership in service to others. Students must provide employment information to confirm their eligibility. For more information, check out springfield.edu/partnership.
Employees of BHN can receive the employee grant for each degree pursued at the college, and participants will be awarded potential transfer credits for completing trainings and certifications as outlined in the college’s experiential-learning handbook.
In addition, the college will provide a pathway for BHN employees, once enrolled, to earn additional credits for their degree program through the college’s prior-learning-assessment portfolio program.
