During the Seattle Summit meeting as part of Wartburg’s Commission on Mission meeting, Professor Emeritus Herman Diers '49 reflected after a day of hopeful conversation focused on a future full of opportunities for the College.

“All of the distinctive things that Wartburg offers, it won’t mean anything if students can’t afford it,” Diers said. “It’s critical that we ensure this unique educational experience centered on leadership and service, faith and learning, remain affordable for future generations.”

Alumni and friends can help make that happen by creating an endowed, an annually-funded, or a Great Expectations Scholarship. While each scholarship is different, offering opportunities for nearly every donor to make a difference, each scholarship gift is: 
  • An investment in a young person’s future
  • An investment in society’s future
  • An investment in Wartburg’s future
  • Needed now, more than ever
  • Personally rewarding for the donor

Nearly 97 percent of Wartburg students demonstrate financial need, and the majority of financial aid comes in the form of student loans or student employment. Your scholarship gift will change a student’s life, and help to keep a Wartburg education affordable.
