Wellesley Fund Scholars

Your gift can make a powerful difference for a student.

Expanding access to education for all students of talent and promise—regardless of their family's economic circumstances—is one of the College's highest priorities. Wellesley is committed to meeting the calculated need of every admitted student.

The Wellesley Fund Scholars program provides a uniquely personal opportunity for you to support a Wellesley student who will benefit throughout her life from your investment in her future.

Here's how you can have an immediate and profound impact on the life of a student:

  • Your gift of $10,000 or more provides financial aid to a talented and deserving student with financial need.

  • Your gift of $25,000 or more provides financial aid to a student pursuing a specific area of study and/or from a particular region of your choice.

  • Your gift of $100,000 or more provides financial aid for the equivalent of a full college career.

The student may receive the financial aid award in your name, or, if you choose, in memory or in honor of a loved one.

The Wellesley Fund Scholars program awards financial aid 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 Durant Society.
