Reminder: Deadline for Scholars Online

Scholars Online receives donations for scholarships directly from parents and former students, and also dedicates all money received from its Bookstore Amazon Associates affiliation to the Scholarship fund. Scholarships are granted on a case-by-case basis for tuition assistance when students would otherwise be unable to take courses due to job loss, medical expenses, or other family emergencies.

To apply, review the description of the scholarship program at our Scholarship page, then create or update your parent and student membership accounts and submit a letter describing your financial need. Enroll in all courses you wish considered for tuition waivers. Scholarships will be offered on June 1 only to students who have already enrolled for summer or fall courses and who have submitted a scholarship request citing financial need by May 31. Please contact to request further information about scholarship availability for the 2019 Summer and Academic Year Courses.

Direct contributions to our scholarship fund are tax-exempt, as Scholars Online is a 501(c)(3) organization. To make a donation by check or online, follow the instructions on the Scholarship page. You may also contribute to the Scholarship Fund by making purchases from through the Scholars Online Bookstore site or by designating Scholars Online as your charity of choice at Smile at Amazon.

New Course for Fall 2019:
Advanced Ethics

Karl Oles has studied philosophy at Pomona College, the University of London, and UCLA, as well as law at the University of Washington. He brings to his courses a wide background in the practical application of ethics gained during nearly a quarter of a century of legal practice, and in previous courses has helped students to apply fundamental processes of logic and reasoning to current politcal arguments ethical questions.

His new course is designed for older students and adults who have already completed some study of ethics or philosophy. The course uses Alasdair MacIntyre's book, After Virtue, which traces historical concepts of virtue and touches on related areas of philosophy, including theories of meaning. The first part of the course will examine historical materials as background for the second part, which will focus on a careful reading of MacIntyre's book and the issues it raises.

The course is structured like an Oxford tutorial, and will demand that students apply critical thinking skills to assigned reading and close analysis in writing weekly essays.

Enrollment for all 2019 academic term courses is open now at Scholars Online.
