The Fund To Finish at West Chester University

A good start is important; a good finish is imperative. The Fund To Finish is flexible emergency aid that offers small awards—often the cost of a few credits—that arrive quickly, ensuring  a student completes their degree. The WCU Foundation awarded more than $22,000 in emergency aid during the 2018-2019 academic year to 17 students, 12 of whom aimed to graduate in May.

"I was an Air Force ROTC cadet scheduled to commission as a 2nd Lieutenant immediately following graduation. Due to the nature of my position as Cadet Wing Commander, as well as my senior level classes and internship, it was difficult to find time for a job to cover the remaining balance on my account. I utilized federal, state, Parent PLUS, and private loans, but as my final semester approached, I was still lacking $1,500 in funds. The University's generosity allowed me to complete my college education. I look forward to what the future holds for me—and for the school."
