JWU Fund Options
By allocating your JWU Fund gift to one or more specific JWU programs, you communicate your priorities while strengthening the aspects of a JWU education you feel are most important, such as:
Financial aid and scholarships are crucial at JWU, where 90 percent of our students demonstrate financial need and 82 percent work part time.
Our goal is to hire industry-experienced faculty members who are passionate and dedicated. Once on staff this fund is used to help faculty remain connected to and deeply knowledgeable about their industries and teaching subjects.
Term & Study Abroad
We support approximately 30 programs that expand our students’ horizons, including terms abroad, coops, and competitions in other countries.
This fund helps students who encounter short-term financial hardships and are facing the real possibility of having to leave JWU.
Student Clubs and Organizations
Through a variety of organizations, our students explore personal interests, join national associations, practice leadership, and build connections.
Student-athletes learn invaluable lessons about self-discipline and leadership as well as competition and teamwork.
Health Services, Counseling & Wellness
Since physical and emotional health are essential to academic success, we provide our students with key professional health and wellness services in a confidential and compassionate environment.
Each year, we seek more sustainable ways to live and teach in a manner that respects and preserves the environment.
