Whittier College acknowledges its gratitude to the many benefactors who have contributed scholarship funds to the university. Due to their generous donations, the Office of Financial Aid is privileged to offer numerous leadership, merit and/or need based scholarship opportunities to Whittier College students.
Most scholarships are awarded automatically by the Whittier College Office of Financial Aid based on criterion established by the funding donor. These awards do not require you to complete a scholarship application. However, you must complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for the appropriate school year to be eligible to receive an endowment.
Students selected for these scholarships will be notified via a revised financial aid award letter. Students awarded a private scholarship from an individual or an organization may be required to attend the Annual Salute to Scholarship Luncheon. All recipients of an endowment are required to provide a written thank you to the contributor.
