Wellesley Fund Scholars

An extraordinary opportunity to make a meaningful difference


Expanding access to education for students of talent and promise—no matter their family's economic circumstances—is one of Wellesley's highest priorities. The College remains committed to meeting the demonstrated need of all admitted students. This is an expensive endeavor, however, as the College tries to control costs while developing programs for today's students.

The Wellesley Fund Scholars is a current-use, designated gift program that provides you with an opportunity to support a Wellesley student who will be forever grateful for 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.
  • The student will receive the financial aid in your name, or, if you choose, in memory or in honor of a loved one.

Financial aid through the Wellesley Fund Scholars program is 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.
