Oxbridge Challenge

 

William Jewell College has been awarded a challenge grant pledge of up to $1,241,500 from Kansas City’s Hall Family Foundation to expand the Oxbridge Honors Program. The four-year pledge will fund enrollment growth and program support each year and scholarship support for three years, contingent upon a one-to-one match by William Jewell of new scholarship funds. To receive the grant pledge in its entirety, Jewell must raise $555,000 in new scholarship dollars by 2017. To ensure our fundraising success, we have recruited an Oxbridge Challenge Committee, made up of Oxbridge alumni, committed to helping the College reach out to the Jewell community for support. Chad Jolly '94, Amy Smith Parker '89 and Eric Zahnd '91, have graciously agreed to serve on this committee.  

 

For more than 30 years, William Jewell has offered the nation’s only Oxbridge Honors Program. Attracting the best and brightest students and faculty to Jewell is a longstanding priority. The Oxbridge Honors Program, with graduates who vie with the very best students in the most competitive graduate and professional programs around the world, complements Jewell’s overall academic rigor. We invite you to partner with us as we continue to grow the Oxbridge program as the most prestigious, selective and valuable undergraduate educational experience in the Kansas City region.


Since the announcement of the Challenge, $502,059 has been committed. In addition to the Hall Family Foundation match, Steve Hemphill '78, will match every Oxbridge alumni gift up to $1,000. Provost Anne Dema and her family issued one additional challenge grant for $25,000 in June 2017, requiring 25% donor participation from Oxbridge alumni. To date, 13% of just over 300 Oxbridge graduates have contributed throughout the three-year campaign.
