Students at a lecture

At Whitman College, we value the diverse perspectives that multicultural students bring to our college. We want to remove barriers to help students from all backgrounds attend Whitman. Our Visit Scholarship Program (VSP) supports this effort by offering students special programs and visits.

Each year, we invite a select group of high school seniors to learn more about Whitman. These students are recommended to our program by high school counselors and are from underrepresented socioeconomic, racial and cultural backgrounds.

Fall Visit Scholarship Program

This Fall, Whitman is offering virtual programming for VSP on November 4 and 6. Students from underrepresented socioeconomic, racial and cultural backgrounds are welcome to apply to learn more about academic and campus life as well as the extensive financial aid opportunities that Whitman College offers. Please contact Miki Konishi with any questions or concerns.
