Northwood Health Systems LEARN TO EARN Program

The community’s need for substance abuse and mental health treatment has increased. Northwood wants to respond to that community concern by generating more interest in careers in the human services field. To generate that additional interest, as explained below, Northwood will pay up to $15,000 toward tuition to assist qualified individuals to obtain a bachelor’s degree in psychology or social work at West Liberty University. This should be considered a one-time offer, as Northwood may not make it available again in the future. More information can be found here.
