The vision of the Blue White Scholarship Foundation is to ensure that students who encounter a financial hardship, and who meet our scholarship criteria, can achieve their dream of obtaining a Villanova degree. 


  • Rising Juniors and Seniors

  • Financial Need - those who have exhausted all possible financial aid

  • Strong Academic Ability

  • Superior Work Ethic-- Students must be working their way through school

In honor of Benjamin Franklin, the creator of the "pay it forward concept," students use traditional quill pens to sign their pledge.


  • Our top donors act as "Judges," reviewing, evaluating, and scoring student applications. The result: Our donors have a direct role in determining which students receive scholarships.



  • Blue White Scholarship recipients have all taken the pledge to pay it forward. Here are six ways to pay it forward that won't break the bank.
