The Joseph E. Hurn Scholarship: Investing in Our Students’ Futures


American National University believes it is important to honor students for their hard work and commitment to their education – especially as many of our students work a full-time job and lead busy lives in addition to their coursework. Choosing to go back to school and staying dedicated to your education is no small feat. It often means making sacrifices, working hard every day, and staying up late at night to excel in your studies as you prepare for the next step in your career. In recognition and support of the hard work of our students who are committed to achieving academic excellence, American National University is introducing the Joseph E. Hurn Scholarship.—

Joseph E. Hurn served as chairman of American National University from 1962 to 1984. He believed in National’s mission of providing students with a strong academic foundation that would help them succeed in their careers. Based on academic merit alone, the Joseph E. Hurn Scholarship is awarded to students who meet certain cumulative grade point average (CGPA) minimums after completing one academic year at American National University (see chart for more information).


The scholarship is available at differing amounts for students pursuing any level of degree – associate’s, bachelor’s, or master’s, whether they are attending school part-time (at a minimum of 8 credits or more per term) or full-time (minimum of 12 credits per term). Students remain eligible for this scholarship for up to three terms, provided that they continue to meet the CGPA requirements and do not withdraw from the university.

At American National University, we recognize our students are investing in their future by pursuing a degree at ANU, and we are proud to invest in their futures as a community. The Joseph E. Hurn scholarship is one of several scholarships funded by American National University aimed at helping students afford this key investment into their future.
