Archway Fund

The Archway Fund supports a broad range of Nebraska Wesleyan University’s initiatives to provide exceptional student experiences and build a solid foundation for NWU’s future. As part of our annual funding, the Archway Fund supports scholarships and financial aid, academic departments, NWU athletics, professors, campus beautification, new technology, small class sizes, experiential learning and more.

Why we need the Archway Fund.

Tuition alone doesn’t cover the cost of the Nebraska Wesleyan educational experience. Each year, we depend on the generosity of alumni and friends to make up the difference.

"My years at Wesleyan were some of the most impactful of my life. (This is where I learned) to believe in myself and push myself. I used that same thought process to get through medical school and residency to the career I have today."
