Webster University Announces New Scholarships for Dependents of Alumni, Faculty and StaffST. LOUIS, Feb. 17, 2009 – Webster University has established two new scholarship opportunities designed for dependents of its alumni and part-time faculty and staff. The two new offerings each provide a savings of nearly 30 percent off Webster’s full tuition rate before any additional scholarships or financial aid are applied.
“During these difficult economic times, Webster University continues to work diligently to identify ways to help members of the Webster community,” said Webster President Neil J. George. “We hope they will find these scholarships helpful as they consider higher education options for their dependents.”
Merit Scholarship for Dependents of Part-Time Faculty and Staff
Beginning in Fall 2009, Webster will offer scholarships to dependents of all current part-time employees and active adjunct faculty at all Webster University campuses worldwide who are interested in becoming full-time freshmen at the university’s home campus in St. Louis, Mo. Dependents who meet the requirements for admission to Webster will be guaranteed a minimum $6,000 merit scholarship that is renewable each year for four years. These applicants also will have the opportunity to compete for additional scholarships.
Alumni Legacy Scholarship for Dependents of Webster University Alumni
The Alumni Legacy Scholarship offers dependents of Webster University alumni a guaranteed $6,000 annual scholarship for full-time freshmen attending the St. Louis home campus, beginning in August 2009. Legacies who meet the admission requirements will be eligible to receive the scholarship each year for a total of four years. Alumni dependents also will be able to apply for additional scholarships or financial aid.
