Student curiosity, enthusiasm and talent add constant vibrancy to the Whittier campus.

Through scholarship support, generous donors make it possible for these students to come to Whittier College and experience an extraordinary liberal arts education inside the classroom.

While here, fellowship support enables students to be exposed to a world of opportunity outside the classroom. Fellowships can take the form of support for international travel, faculty-led research experiences, or meaningful work experience. 

The value of scholarships and fellowships at Whittier can be seen every day as students are competitively positioned for careers in a variety of industries, graduate school study, and outside awards. Your investment in Whittier students prepares them to excel while on campus, and to go out to succeed in their communities after graduation.

Scholarship Gifts

With close to 80% of students receiving College aid, Whittier awards more than $15 million in scholarship support each year to enable the best and the brightest students from all over the world to attend the College. Endowed scholarships and annual scholarship gifts through the Whittier Fund play a crucial role in maintaining a bright and engaged student body.

Fellowship Gifts

Student fellowships provide transformative educational experiences for students outside the classroom. These fellowship opportunities can take the form of support for international travel, support for research projects with Whittier faculty, or support for internships and work experiences.
