Eligibility Requirements 

 Dependent children are eligible for Wesleyan's Undergraduate Tuition Scholarship Program provided:    

  • The child is a dependent* son or daughter of a Wesleyan employee serving at least a three-quarter time basis (.75 FTE) covered by the Agreement between Wesleyan University and UFSO Local 651.    
  • The parent is in the employment (at least .75 FTE) of Wesleyan at the time application is made and at the beginning and end of each academic term for which scholarship aid is granted.    
  • The parent has accumulated five or more years of continuous service at Wesleyan while working at least .75 FTE as a Public Safety Officer throughout the qualifying period.    
  • The dependent child is enrolled in an undergraduate degree program at Wesleyan or at another accredited college or university on a full-time basis. The maximum award is four full-time undergraduate years or the equivalent.    
  • If both parents are Wesleyan employees, the scholarships cannot be combined.    

The scholarship award is a payment toward the cost of tuition equal to the difference between the school's tuition charge and any scholarships received from sources other than Wesleyan, up to a maximum dollar amount equivalent to 50% of Wesleyan's tuition charge;            

$26,087 for the 2017-2018 academic year

$25,156 for the 2016-2017 academic year    

In the event the student's tuition charge is less than 50% of Wesleyan's tuition charge, the difference will be applied to academic fees and books up to a total of $500 per semester.  Each child is eligible for one scholarship award. The total tuition scholarship to which each child is entitled will be apportioned equally among the academic terms constituting an academic year and credited to the student's account on that basis. Children of personnel working on a three-quarter basis or more, but less than full-time will receive a scholarship proportionate to their parent's degree of full-time employment.   

*Tuition scholarships are available for a natural, adopted, or stepchild of yours, your spouse, or your domestic partner. The child must be listed on the current calendar year tax return as a dependent for tax purposes; if not, the son or daughter is independent of parental support and therefore not eligible. Suitable proof of dependency in connection with approval of your application may be requested.
