Douglass Student Scholarship Support

Gifts to the Douglass Scholarship Fund provide support to Douglass women as they continue their education. From the moment students become part of Douglass, they are empowered to make their mark on the world. Douglass offers an advantage that’s second-to-none in preparing its students to be tomorrow’s leaders: it is the only women’s college in the nation to be situated within a comprehensive public research university. This allows for endless opportunities.

For some Douglass women, scholarships ensure they are able to remain in college and complete their education. For others, scholarships offer an opportunity to experience a global education, even if they had never traveled beyond their hometown before. Still other Douglass students receive scholarship support that enables them to take advantage of lab and other research opportunities that might have been out of their reach financially.

With more than 80 percent of students qualifying for financial aid, scholarship support is vitally important to ensure that talented Douglass students have the resources necessary to achieve their academic goals and immerse themselves in the Douglass experience. Your support of Douglass scholarships helps the college to recruit and retain successful future leaders, and offer them opportunities for intensive, global, and professional engagement during their college career.

Scholarship support for Douglass Residential College ensures that Douglass women have opportunities to reach their academic goals. If you would like to discuss specific scholarship options—such as named or endowed scholarship gifts—please contact our office at
