Student Access & Scholarships

Student Access & Scholarships

Having Light, we will bridge the difference between the cost of the education and the price students and families can afford, making it easier for more Witt-fit students to say “Yes!” to Wittenberg.

Why It Matters

Bringing the cost of a Wittenberg education within closer reach for families is essential to our success in recruiting, enrolling, and retaining promising students who will thrive at Wittenberg and take advantage of all we have to offer. Private gifts make the education accessible, keep us competitive with our peers, and ensure that students have the financial support they need to complete their education at Wittenberg. 

How We Can Make a Difference

  • Give directly to the Wittenberg Opportunity Scholarship Fund - Wittenberg's Unrestricted Scholarship Fund - which provides immediate assistance to the students who need it most. 
  • Endow scholarships, the greatest tool we have to attract and enroll high-achieving classes of diverse students. 
  • Give to a Named Scholarship Fund.

Why Right Now

Wittenberg provides all students some combination of scholarship or need-based assistance. With unprecedented levels of support from alumni and friends, we can sustain our generosity and raise it, increasing our reach to those students who belong at Wittenberg.

Giving to make Wittenberg affordable for students is about them becoming their best selves. It is also about Wittenberg continuing to be true to itself, steadfast in our mission to provide a liberal arts education to intellectually inquisitive, diverse classes of students who pass their light on to the world.
