At Wheaton, we are invested in making a Wheaton education within reach for all our students.
Wheaton students and families make a substantial investment in their educational experience with the college. Tuition & fees for 2019–2020 were $68,664, however, the actual amount most families pay is much lower due to financial aid, grants, and scholarships. This is because the college is invested in making the Wheaton experience accessible to talented students from every economic background, across the United States and around the world. With an investment in scholarship, you help the college strengthen an already robust financial aid program that stands out amongst our peers in the very competitive admissions arena, which ultimately is critical to our ability to matriculate the brightest students.
Wheaton Fund donations will help support:
Hear from a few students who were beneficiaries of Wheaton Fund scholarships during the 2019–2020 academic year:
"At Wheaton I’ve had opportunities to go on service trips for hurricane relief in Houston and New Orleans, danced with the Trybe hip-hop dance team, and sung at The Lyons Den and with the Voices United to Jam gospel choir. This scholarship means so much because it supports my education at Wheaton and lessens my mother’s load. When I complete my education, I hope to work as a social media marketer and influencer that champions the voices of young women of color worldwide."
"Wheaton has provided me with a great liberal arts experience in which I have been able to study a wide range of subjects while staying on course in pursuit of my degree in anthropology. I also have been able to engage in exciting and meaningful co-curricular activities. After Wheaton, I plan to continue on to graduate school for anthropological archaeology and someday become a professor. These opportunities are possible because of the graciousness of donors, for which I am thankful."
"My classes are challenging, but also equally rewarding, especially the classes taught by Professor Speights, Chapman, and Cathcart. My involvement in the Black Student Association as president, the WinHub as a special programming assistant, and other activities keep me active and engaged on campus."
"I love the Mars Science Center. As a biochemistry major, I spend a lot of time in there. I also love how it is connected to the library and the Old Science Center. I feel very at home walking through the halls of those buildings. I really enjoy how many events are held on campus by clubs, departments, and other organizations. There is always something going on which allows the campus to be very active and lively. I am a life-long Girl Scout, and at Wheaton I serve as the Student Government Association's Treasurer and a Resident Advisor. I am also a member of Wheaton's Emergency Medical Services team."
"The scholarship is a significant relief for my family. It has always been just my mom and I paying for college, and with her low-pay job, and me being a full-time student, it makes bills hard to pay for. This scholarship takes a significant chunk of that burden away and enables me to still be able to continue my studies at Wheaton. I am extremely thankful for it. At Wheaton I founded the Story Writers Club, am a member of Archery Club, the Student Business Association, the German Club, the Wheaton Democrats, and the House of REPS."
