Scholarships & Endowed Funds

As a scholarship patron, you make it possible for Webster University students to have access to a college education, faculty to have opportunities to research and teach, and University programs the ability to expand and thrive.

The team in the Office of Advancement is eager to help you find the best giving option that fits with your passions and personal vision.  

Named Endowed Scholarships and Funds

Named endowed scholarships and funds are invested to provide both annual awards and fund growth to ensure your impact on Webster University.

When you choose to establish a named endowed scholarship or fund, you can designate your gift to one of Webster's schools or colleges, specific academic programs, Webster's home campus, or any extended campus.  

Name endowed scholarship and funds can be established with a gift of $25,000 or greater.

Established through designated major gifts, Webster’s endowed faculty positions are a means of recognizing excellence in teaching, research and scholarship. For more information about creating an endowed professorship, please contact the Office of Advancement.

Named Annual Scholarships

Named 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 in the next academic year. Your scholarship may be designated to any of Webster's five schools or colleges.
