The Woodbury Fund


All gifts and pledges will help secure the future of Woodbury University and shape the futures of our students. Your support is a vote of confidence in our efforts to nurture, challenge and transform the lives of students and allows us to be good stewards of this extraordinary University.

While larger portions of the university operating budget come from tuition and the endowment, The Woodbury University Fund is essential to the financial health of the university. Gifts are unrestricted and support each of our four schools, Student Affairs, academic programs, scholarships, and the library. Your commitment make an immediate difference today! How we apply your investment:

Student Scholarships: Woodbury University is committed to financial accessibility and socioeconomic diversity among its students, and offers competitive merit-based financial aid to top-performing scholars.

  • Student travel for study abroad

Scholarship Funds

Woodbury Scholarship

The Woodbury University Scholarship Fund was established for the sole purpose of providing scholarships to students currently enrolled in Woodbury University. Scholarships are a way to bridge the gap for those who are academically able yet financially challenged.

100% of your gift goes directly to students that have demonstrated need.


Presidential Scholarship Fund

The Presidential Scholarship is a renewable, need, and merit-based award. Representing diverse intellectual, social, ethnic, and economic backgrounds, Presidential Scholars are transformational leaders both on and off-campus who have demonstrated a love of learning and a commitment to academic excellence and enhancing both their local and broader civic communities.


Seta Javor Student Scholarship Fund

Seta Javor

The Seta Javor Student Scholarship Fund honors long-time Woodbury staff member, Seta Javor. During Seta’s three decades at the university, she has been dedicated to helping students succeed. This scholarship is designed to provide support for students with a demonstrated financial need as well as to help increase the diversity of the student population at Woodbury.


Woodbury Social Justice Scholarship Fund

Woodbury University is committed to building a culture that values diversity, open communication, collaboration and engagement. As part of our commitment to institutional diversity, we are launching a new Social Justice Scholarship Fund that will provide scholarships to undergraduate students from underrepresented groups who are themselves committed to eradicate social injustice and ensure lasting equality, respect, opportunity and justice for all.

New undergraduate students are encouraged to apply for a Woodbury University Social Justice Scholarship who are underrepresented racial and ethnic minorities, members of immigrant families, multi-racial, gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender, from first in generation to attend college and/or educationally disadvantaged families. The scholarships will be awarded without regard to race, gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, religion, or creed.

Each School/College shall make applications available and select the recipients.  Private contributions to the Fund will be directed consistent with donor request into four categories:

  • College of Liberal Arts and Sciences
  • School of Architecture
  • School of Business
  • School of Media, Culture and Design

Student eligibility requirements include:

  • Recipients shall be new students who have enrolled as full-time students in an undergraduate program with financial need.
  • The award is $2,000 for the academic year in which the recipient is enrolled full-time or $1,000 for the academic year for part-time. The awards may be renewable on an annual basis depending on the balance of the Fund.
  • Recipients shall submit an essay that describes their academic goals, intended strategies for attaining the stated goals, and commitment to social justice. The award criteria will include: 1) clarity of purpose; 2) ability to communicate effectively; and, 3) coherence of academic plan.


Unity Scholarship Fund

This fund supports the educational aspirations of our students who demonstrate a commitment to promoting the well-being of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered, and/or queer (LGBTQ) communities.


Villa Cabrini Scholarship Fund

This fund establishes seed funding to create an endowed scholarship to formally be known as the Villa Cabrini Scholarship Fund. This fund honors the legacy of the women of Villa Cabrini Academy and their endearing legacy.


Food for Thought

According to the USDA, roughly 1 in 7 Americans experiences food insecurity—a lack of consistent access to enough food for an active, healthy life. The negative impacts of food insecurity on both physical and emotional health are well documented and range from anemia and asthma to aggression and suicidal ideation.

At Woodbury University, we believe that no student should ever need to worry about where their next meal is coming from. That’s why we are pleased to introduce the Food for Thought program which provides meals to students who struggle with food insecurity. The program may provide as many as 5 free meals a week at a nearby eatery.

Students struggling with food insecurity can complete and submit the form on this page, with completely confidential submissions.

Friends of the Library

The Friends include sponsorship of special projects, informing the public of the resources and services of the library, funding services and materials that are beyond the command of the ordinary library budget, and performing other services deemed useful to the Library.

High School Academy Fund

The Woodbury High School Academy Fund supports those students who participate in Woodbury’s yearly summer high school academy courses. These intensive summer courses are for rising 11th and 12th-grade high school students who are looking to explore their higher education options while getting a jump on college credit.

  • Donations will be used primarily to cover the tuition of students and course materials related to instruction.
  • Donations can be directed to the course/s of the donor’s choice.
  • Unused donations will be carried over to the following year.
