Webster University Grant

Webster University Grant assistance is a university-funded program which provides assistance to undergraduate students pursuing a first bachelor's degree and who are enrolled for 13 or more credit hours per semester. This aid program is available to St. Louis campus students only and is intended to augment other gift aid that the student may or may not be receiving. Awards vary depending upon the level of a student's unmet need.

Room & Board Grant

Room and Board Grant assistance is a limited university-funded program which provides assistance to undergraduate students pursuing a first bachelor's degree, who are enrolled for 13 or more credit hours per semester and living in campus housing. This aid program is available to St. Louis campus students only and awards vary depending upon the level of a student's unmet need.  This program began with eligible new students in Fall 2016 who planned to live on campus.  If a student decides to not live on campus or moves out of campus, eligibility for this grant ends.  It is the responsibility of the student to inform the Financial Aid Office if they are not living in campus housing so this assistance can be removed.  The Financial Aid Office will remove the grant once it is discovered the student is not living in campus housing.
