Give to Scholarships & Endowed Funds
"The scholarships that allow me to stay here give me a competitive edge in a highly competitive job market."
"I'll be the first person on either side of my family to have attended and graduated from college, which is a big accomplishment for myself and my parents."
"I am grateful for people and alumni like you who have come together to support students like me and make my Webster experience life-changing."
"Many people have come together to help me to get to and thrive at Webster. Thank you for your support that helps students like me."
The need for scholarship support is greater than ever. Webster University has a long tradition of educating those with limited financial resources but exceptional potential and dedication to learning. Our students, including many who are the first in their family to attend college, come from extremely diverse backgrounds and have a wide range of interests and passions. For many of these promising students, scholarships provided by Webster alumni and friends are the only way they are able to continue their education. Today's Webster students are tomorrow's leaders, educators, entrepreneurs, and artists — we will need them for a bright future. Right now, they need us.
There are many options to donate to scholarships at any amount including the general scholarship fund, school or college scholarship funds, and many popular endowed scholarship funds.
What is a Daniel Webster Society Annual Scholarship?
Daniel Webster Society Annual Scholarships are an opportunity to give a yearly gift to Webster University and provide a scholarship for a deserving student. An annual gift of at least $1,500 creates a scholarship in your name, or the name of a loved one, that will be awarded to a promising undergraduate student in the next academic year. Your scholarship may be designated to any of Webster's five schools or colleges. Benefactors providing Daniel Webster Society Annual Scholarships are invited to meet their scholar at Webster's Annual Scholarship Dinner and will receive invitations to other Daniel Webster Society events.
Create a Lasting Legacy with an Endowed Scholarship Fund
Would you like to see your legacy live on at Webster in perpetuity? Endowed scholarship funds are invested to provide both annual awards and fund growth — ensuring that your gift is never eroded by inflation. Endowed scholarships can benefit any of Webster's schools or colleges, specific academic programs, and students attending any Webster campus. The development staff can work with you to design a scholarship that meets your philanthropic goals. Partial scholarships can be established with a gift of $25,000 or greater.
