Webster University recognizes the financial commitment that parents make in enrolling their children, and for that reason any gifts made above and beyond scheduled tuition payments are greatly appreciated. The Parent Fund is one destination for these charitable gifts.
This fund offers financial assistance to qualified students who lose their bread-winning parent, due to death, severe illness, loss of job or circumstances of a similar gravity, while enrolled at the University. WU parents who contribute to this fund make it possible to award a Parent Grant that helps bear the cost for families in need.
The academic deans, along with the Dean of Students, will make and submit nominations and recommendations for this grant(s) to the Parent Council who, through the Director of Parent & Student Programs, to the Scholarship Office for award with discretion.
