    The Williston Jones Full-Tuition Scholarship Program

    Application Deadlines:
    January 4, 2021 - competitions on January 23, 2021 & February 21, 2021

    Williston Jones, the founder of Coe College, was a man of great conviction. His passion for education led him to Daniel Coe, a New York farmer, who donated the funds necessary to purchase the land that made Coe College a reality. From its inception in 1851, Coe College has admitted men and women on an equal basis. In addition, these founding fathers and other members of the original board of trustees were early advocates of equal rights and education for all individuals, regardless of gender, race or ethnicity.

    The Williston Jones Scholarship Program seeks to further their legacy of enriching the educational experience by inclusion of a wide range of voices. Williston Jones Scholarships exist for a variety of our prospective student populations.
    • Distinguished Trustee Scholarship – Open only to select prospective students who have received a special invitation to apply and demonstrate an ability to positively impact the campus. 
    • Diversity Leadership Scholarship – Open to prospective students who are U.S. citizens, permanent residents or undocumented residents, from broadly diverse backgrounds. In support of the College's mission, preference for at least one of these full-tuition awards will be given to a fully qualified student with DACA status, provided such a student is present in the applicant pool. (No ACT/SAT score required to apply.) 
    • Sustainability Scholarship – Open to prospective students who have a passion for the environment, creating sustainable practices and reducing our carbon footprint on the world. (No ACT/SAT score required to apply.) 
    • Marshall Music Scholarship – Open to prospective students who have the motivation and background necessary to pursue the Bachelor of Music degree. (No ACT/SAT score required to apply.) 
    Full-tuition Williston Jones awards are renewable for an additional three years at the rate of tuition of the student’s entering year. Students who receive a Williston Jones scholarship valued at $35,000 or more are not eligible for any other Coe-funded financial aid and the Williston Jones scholarship will replace any institutional scholarships or grants they may have been awarded.  To receive the full scholarship amount, students must live on campus. Commuter students should contact the Office of Admission with any questions.
