Scholarship America®, the nation’s leading nonprofit scholarship and educational support organization, is pleased to announce that Greg Dehn has joined the organization as senior vice president, Scholarship America and General Manager, Scholarship Management Services. In this role, Dehn will play a key role as a member of Scholarship America’s leadership team and in advancing the organization’s mission. He will lead the overall strategy, business development and operations of the Scholarship Management Services division that provides scholarships and other assistance awards totaling $161M to more than 60,000 students annually.
“As a former scholarship recipient and a first-generation college student, Greg comes to Scholarship America with a passion for the organization’s mission to make postsecondary success possible for all students,” said Lauren A. Segal, president and CEO of Scholarship America. “In addition, Greg’s experience with major national corporations positions him to take both Scholarship Management Services and Scholarship America to a new level.”
Prior to his appointment as senior vice president & general manager for Scholarship America, Dehn served as vice president, US Professional Services and Corporate Technology Product Development for Ceridian Corporation where he managed a sales and product development team that worked with C-level executives in corporations around the world. He has served in service, product and technology leadership positions in many global organizations including Medtronic, Boston Scientific, UnitedHealth Group, and Target Corporation.
“My education was made possible through scholarships and organizations, like Scholarship America, dedicated to developing, administering and connecting students with funding to help them achieve their educational goals,” said Dehn. “Unfortunately rising educational costs and increasingly complicated barriers to higher education continue to prevent others from reaching their educational dreams.
“I am impressed by Scholarship America’s legacy and am excited to work with the team to bring existing and new solutions and services to an increasingly challenging and important problem.”
Dehn is active in the community and is a board member of Wilderness Inquiry, a global outdoor adventure organization dedicated to providing wilderness and leadership experience for all abilities.
