Wilmington University Scholarship Fund

The Scholarship Fund was established to provide scholarships to many of the University’s well-deserving students. Every year WilmU alumni, faculty, staff and friends contribute generous donations to the Scholarship Fund—100% of which go directly toward scholarships and benefits for our students.
