Why the Classes of 2014 and 1984 Teleo Scholarship?
This will be a scholarship partnership between the Class of 1984 and the Class of 2014, this year’s graduating class. Many current students have either experienced first-hand or know someone who was faced with the reality of financial loss that made it impossible to finish their time at Wheaton. For an upperclassman, this is particularly tragic because of the relationships they have formed and strengthened that are then cut short. This year’s scholarship is designed to offer financial assistance to seniors who would otherwise have to leave Wheaton College. In the original Greek of the New Testament, Teleo means to finish, complete, fulfill—something that these classes hope to help students accomplish in their Wheaton education.
To help promote this new scholarship, the Class of 2014 put together a video explaining the gift at their Senior Class Banquet.
Why the Wheaton Fund?
The Wheaton Fund is the engine of Wheaton’s mission. As the primary funding vehicle through which Wheaton College advances its highest priorities, the Wheaton Fund is sustained by the unrestricted gifts of alumni, parents, and friends. Gifts to the Wheaton Fund help keep Wheaton affordable for every student and they also support the College’s Strategic Priorities.
