Scholarships and Stewardship
“I study music so that I can make a difference in the lives of others by empowering them through the arts. Your generous scholarship donation helps to bring my dream closer to reality. Thank you!” - Katianne Janney ’15
Scholarship support is more critical than ever. Today, 97% of our talented and deserving students receive some level of financial aid from the University, totaling over $61 million annually. Scholarships help attract the best and brightest students and help to make a Westminster education accessible for all, regardless of their financial status. Scholarships funded by individual donors, corporations, foundations, and organizations provide essential support for this critical area of need on both the Lawrenceville and Princeton campuses.
An endowed scholarship of $25,000 or more ensures that funds are available in perpetuity to help Westminster’s students afford growing tuition costs. Each year, a portion of the accrued interest funds a scholarship award; the remainder is returned to the endowment so that it will grow with every passing year. Since endowed scholarships become a “living” part of Westminster Choir College, many donors choose to create one to commemorate a family legacy, a dear friend, or another important individual. View a list of current endowed scholarships.
Current-use scholarships provide tuition assistance to students on a year-to-year basis. Current-use scholarships may be established in the name of the donor, or in honor of memory of someone special with a gift of $1,000 or more.
If you are interested in establishing a named current-use or endowed scholarship, Westminster Choir College will work with you to craft parameters.
