President's Scholarship

The primary purpose of the President's Scholarship (the "PS") is to encourage high school students and graduates who have demonstrated above-average academic achievement to commit to pursuing a higher level of education. The PS is only available to eligible students attending classes at Daniel Webster College in:

  • an online associate degree program of study ("OAP Students");
  • an online bachelor's degree program of study ("OBP Students");
  • an online master's degree program of study ("OMP Students"); or
  • a resident bachelor's degree program of study ("RBP Students").

An OAP Student, an OBP Student, an OMP Student or a RBP Student will qualify for a PS award for the first academic year of attendance for which the OAP Student, OBP Student, OMP Student or RBP Student is eligible to receive a PS award. At the end of each subsequent academic year that an eligible OAP Student is enrolled in an online associate degree program, an eligible OBP Student is enrolled in an online bachelor's degree program, an eligible OMP Student is enrolled in an online master's degree program or an eligible RBP Student is enrolled in a resident bachelor's degree program, the college will determine if the eligible OAP Student, eligible OBP Student, eligible OMP Student or eligible RBP Student qualifies for a PS award for that academic year. If the eligible OAP Student, eligible OBP Student, eligible OMP Student or eligible RBP Student qualifies for a PS award for a particular academic year after the first academic year:

  • the eligible OAP Student will receive a PS award in the form of a retroactive reduction of the amount of tuition and fees charged to the eligible OAP Student for the courses of the online associate degree program taken by the eligible OAP Student in that academic year;
  • the eligible OBP Student will receive a PS award in the form of a retroactive reduction of the amount of tuition and fees charged to the eligible OBP Student for the courses of the online bachelor's degree program taken by the eligible OBP Student in that academic year;
  • the eligible OMP Student will receive a PS award in the form of a retroactive reduction of the amount of tuition and fees charged to the eligible OMP Student for the courses of the online master's degree program taken by the eligible OMP Student in that academic year; and
  • the eligible RBP Student will receive a PS award in the form of a retroactive reduction of the amount of tuition and fees charged to the eligible RBP Student for the courses of the resident bachelor's degree program taken by the eligible RBP Student in that academic year.

The maximum amount of the PS awards for which:

  • an OAP Student may be eligible and qualify will not exceed:
    • $4,285 in any academic year of attendance for which the OAP Student is eligible and qualifies for a PS award; or
    • $10,000 in total for all academic years; or

    • $20,000 in total for all academic years; or
  • an OMP Student may be eligible and qualify will not exceed:
    • $5,000 in any academic year of attendance for which the OMP Student is eligible and qualifies for a PS award; or
