First Responder Scholarship

The Webster University First Responder Scholarship is open to qualified First Responders at the undergraduate, undergraduate completion and graduate levels, as well as to qualified First Responder transfer students, attending or planning to attend a Webster University campus in the United States.  The program is available, also, for those enrolled or planning to enroll in Webster University online undergraduate degree programs or online graduate degree programs. We have recently added Police Academy Transfer Credit opportunities.

Eligibility, Scholarship & Tuition Information

Any currently qualified First Responder (law enforcement, fire, EMT) is eligible for this program. The First Responder tuition rate is our normal Metro campus tuition rates, but all students are eligible to receive a First Responder Scholarship which essentially reduces your “net tuition” to equal that of our active duty military students The program is available to qualified First Responders who are undergraduate and graduate students enrolled at any US campus or online. Flat fee degree programs are excluded; Undergraduate Flat fee, Conservatory, Global MA International Relations, MA International Nongovernmental Organizations, and MS Nurse Anesthesia. No military rate is offered for these programs. Additionally, the Scholarship is not retroactive to previous terms of enrollment.

First Responder organizations with the potential for 20 to 25 students may qualify for a cohort group, available in the classroom, online, or in a combination of the two.
