Financial Aid Quote

One in Five Students

Approximately 20% of the undergraduate student body benefits from one or more forms of financial aid or scholarship assistance to help fund their studies at Webster’s ­Geneva campus. There are various financial assistance programs for which eligible students may be considered:  Need-based Financial awards (see below), Scholars Program scholarship awards (see Scholars Program details) and work-study.

Depending on your demonstrated need and your academic ability, it may be possible to combine these different sources to help meet your ­financial needs gap (work-study positions may depend on your residency status in Switzerland and the EU).

Financial Aid Awards (based on need)

Each year Webster University provides need-based awards to a number of prospective students. Grants are awarded on the basis of demon­strated financial need and do not require repayment. Eligibility is deter­mined based on the family’s financial ability to fund educational costs, and range from about 20% to 50% of tuition. Combined award packages are capped (maximum) at 50% of tuition, or about CHF 16,000 (50% of CHF 33,280).  Note: United States citizens and US Green Card holders may be considered for other forms of financial assistance from the U.S. Government (student loans, etc).

Applications for Financial Aid from Webster University can only be processed after an offer of admission has been made.  Application forms can be provided by the admissions team upon request.

Work-Study Program

Work-study awards are a limited type of financial assistance that may permit you to work on campus up to 12 hours per week. Eligible students can earn an hourly salary that is credited towards tuition. Work-study positions at Webster include oppor­tunities in academic departments, administrative offi­ces, the library or in residence halls. The advantages to you of working on campus go beyond financial remuneration. You will enhance your workplace skills and gain expe­rience that you can leverage in a future job. Preference is given to students with documented financial need.

Family Legacy Scholarship

The Family Legacy Scholarship is a CHF 2,000 award offered to new incoming students that have a sibling (brother or sister) currently enrolled in Webster Geneva. This is a one-time only award credited towards tuition of the first semester of enrollment of the new student.

Second Generation Legacy Scholarship

Webster University Geneva offers a CHF 2,000 yearly tuition (CHF 1,000 per semester) reduction for the direct descendants or dependent sons and/or daughters of Webster University alumni. The “Second Generation Legacy Scholarship” can be applied during the duration of a Bachelor’s education, a maximum of four years. Full details can be found here.
