Wellesley Fund Scholars

“When I arrived at Wellesley College my first year, I had no idea that I would fall in love with the Middle East and the Arabic language, and eventually devote my college degree and future career to these subjects.
I would never have discovered these interests nor had the resources and support to pursue them here at Wellesley without the financial support of my generous donor.
She has made an enormous difference in my life.”
– Eden Bass ’13

The Wellesley Fund Scholars program provides you with a rare opportunity to personally support and get to know a Wellesley student—a young woman who will be forever grateful for your investment in her and in her future.

At Wellesley, it is our proud tradition to admit students without regard to their financial circumstances, and to meet 100 percent of a student’s calculated financial need. In doing so, we are able to provide the finest liberal arts education available today to women from around the world. In order to continue doing so, we need donors like you to support our efforts.

Through this current-use, designated-gift program, your gift of $10,000 or more will provide a one-year scholarship to a talented and deserving student with financial need.

Your gift of $25,000 or more will provide a one-year scholarship to a student pursuing a specific area of study and/or from a particular region of the country of your choice. The student will receive the scholarship in your name, or, if you choose, in memory or in honor of a loved one.

Through the Wellesley Fund Scholars program you can have an immediate and profound impact on the life of an individual student.

To make a meaningful difference in the life of a Wellesley student, contact The Wellesley Fund at giving@wellesley.edu or 800.358.3543.

Please also note: Scholarships funded through the Wellesley Fund Scholars program are awarded during the current or following academic year, depending on the date of your gift to Wellesley. Donors electing to give to the College in this way become members of the President’s Circle of the Durant Society, Wellesley’s gift recognition society for our most generous and devoted supporters.
