The Wall Street Journal reports that a growing number of post-secondary fellowships are geared toward advanced-career workers and retirees to study alongside traditional undergraduates.  Stanford and Harvard universities piloted the first advance-career education fellowship offerings, according to the WSJ. Other schools, including the University of Notre Dame and the University of Minnesota, now are following suit.
College representatives say these fellowships, which often cater to baby boomers seeking a second act, are a win for institutions’ bottom lines because they target white-collar workers paying sometimes hefty tuition fees.
