Webster University Centennial GalaThe Gala tops off a yearlong celebration of Webster University’s Centennial.

This will be an evening of surprises and special guests – filled with distinctively Webster superstars! Join us as we pay tribute to our Centennial year and look toward the future as together we will create global impact for the next century – starting right here in St. Louis.

Proceeds benefit the Webster University Next Century Leaders Scholarship Fund.



Next Century Leaders Scholarship Fund

Gala proceeds go to support the Webster University Next Century Leaders Scholarship Fund. This fund provides critical support to Webster students and helps to set them on a path to success. Often, these scholarships help relieve students of the need for second jobs and excess financial aid loans - allowing them to devote more concentrated attention to their academic work.

In a real way, your endowed scholarship is a permanent legacy for both you and your scholarship recipient. Each dollar of your gift helps to make a Webster education more accessible to students striving to follow their dreams. This is a unique opportunity to partner with Webster University in creating a new generation and a new century of successful students who are dedicated to their communities.

Did you know? – Approximately 90% of Webster’s full-time freshmen students receive financial aid in the form of loans and scholarships. Approximately 35% of undergraduates are first generation college students.

“As the first person in my family to attend college, your generosity shapes the lives of students more than you know.” Daniel Bauman, BA ’14; 2013-14 Paulus Scholar

“Webster doesn’t just graduate students, Webster creates world-changers.” Lauren Meyer-Hoggart, BA ’10, MA ‘12

“Your scholarship will help me earn credentials in medicine. I am majoring in biological science, which requires special training and coursework. My passion for medicine is matched only by my desire to help others have a better and healthier life in the future.” Connie Moore ’17 Biological Sciences, 2013-14 Fox Family Foundation Scholar
