30%* Tuition Reduction for Vantage Bank Employees

Vantage Bank logoAs a proud partner with Vantage Bank, Our Lady of the Lake University (OLLU) is pleased to offer Vantage employees a 30% tuition reduction scholarship on most OLLU undergraduate and graduate programs*.

The OLLU-Vantage Bank Scholarship is an excellent benefit for busy professionals who want to expand their education and skills without pausing their career. OLLU was the first higher education institution in Texas and the region to offer alternative scheduling to support working adult students. OLLU pioneered the weekend degree program concept in San Antonio more than 30 years ago and expanded it to the Rio Grande Valley and Houston. Today the weekend degree concept is part of the university’s array of nontraditional scheduling options that include evening, weekend, online and hybrid programs designed for working professionals who need to balance work, family and school. OLLU has campuses in San Antonio, Rio Grande Valley (La Feria) and Houston.
