ADVANCING ACADEMIC CURIOSITY WESTERN GRADUATE STUDENT SCHOLARSHIP FUND Students who pursue advanced degrees bring to Western a high caliber of intellectual maturity that directly contributes to our longstanding reputation of academic excellence. Despite their drive and educational aptitude, graduate students do not have the same level of access to private scholarship support as their undergraduate counterparts, yet they continue to play an integral role in shaping the overall academic identity of an institution. At Western, we are committed to supporting current undergraduate students who aspire to obtain an advanced degree.

Through our Master’s Pathway Programs, known as 3+2 offerings, students can complete both their undergraduate and graduate studies in just five years. To help relieve financial pressures on our graduate students – many of whom are a part of the growing population of students in the U.S. who collectively share more than $1.5 trillion in student debt, a disproportionate amount resulting from graduate studies – we will endow the WESTERN GRADUATE STUDENT SCHOLARSHIP FUND to help further the dreams of our most academically driven learners.
