Parent Fund | Webster University

Webster University recognizes the financial commitment that parents make in enrolling their children, and for that reason any gifts made above and beyond scheduled tuition payments are greatly appreciated. The Parent Fund is one destination for these charitable gifts.

Students may apply for support from the Parent Fund when they find that they need to pay down their balance with the University in order to register for classes during the fall and spring semesters.


  • Open to full-time, currently enrolled, undergraduate students at Webster Groves campus with at least a 3.0 GPA.
  • Students that apply are within $500 of the $1500 threshold to register for classes.
  • Priority will be given to senior level students that are within two semesters of graduation.
  • A student can apply for the Parent Fund each semester they are eligible. Once a student is granted the fund, they cannot be awarded funds again.
  • Each applicant must have exhausted all other forms of internal financial assistance. This includes going through the Financial Aid Appeal process.


  • Qualified students can apply for the Parent Fund between October 1 and 15 to be considered for funding for the spring registration period and March 1 and 15 to be considered for the fall registration period.
  • A student will be made aware of their approval for funding by the Director of Parent Engagement by November 1 for the spring registration period and by April 1 of the fall registration period.
