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 three financial assistance programs for which eligible students may be considered. Depending on your demonstrated need, your academic ability, and your residence permit status for Switzerland, it may be possible to combine these sources to help meet your financial need.
Financial Aid Grants
Each year Webster University provides need-based grants 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. Awards are capped at 50% of tuition, approximately CHF 16,000. Note: United States citizens and green card holders may be considered for other forms of financial assistance from the U.S. Government (student loans, Pell grants).
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.
