Scholarships

Investment in scholarships promotes equity and opportunity for students from all backgrounds.

Scholarship support is critical to ensuring that access to a Westminster education is not limited by one’s socioeconomic status. Endowed scholarships allow Westminster to continue offering life-changing educational experiences to deserving students in perpetuity. At Westminster, 25 percent of students are first-generation college students, and 98 percent of first-year students receive scholarship aid.

“I cannot put into words how much of an impact my donors have made on my life.”
