The Fund for WP
Thanks to the involvement of countless donors, The Fund for WP helps our students enter the workplace ready for any challenge. They have the advantage of learning in classrooms, or virtually, with the latest technology, and develop valuable skills through hands-on internships and field practicums. Regardless of major, The Fund for WP provides vital funding to foster an environment that is rich in opportunities.

Scholarship gifts are pooled to create annual funding for students, enabling them to devote time and energy to the academic and extracurricular activities that contribute to a well-balanced and fulfilling college education that will serve them in the professional lives they pursue after graduation.
