BVU Forms Strategic Partnership With Mid-Sioux Opportunity

Buena Vista University has entered into a Strategic Partnership with Mid-Sioux Opportunity, Inc.

The partnership allows employees of Mid-Sioux, as well as eligible family members of full-time employees, to receive grant funding to lower the overall cost of education while enrolled in classes at BVU’s Storm Lake campus. Partner grant funding also lowers the cost per credit hour for students enrolled in BVU’s online undergraduate programs or the organizational leadership graduate program.

Mid-Sioux Opportunity, Inc is a private, nonprofit organization that strives to fight poverty at a local level by assisting low-income families to become self-sufficient. The organization is based in Remsen, and partners with the state and federal governments to serve individuals in five northwest Iowa counties including Cherokee and Ida.
