The Students’ Aid Society provides short-term loans, tuition loans, and other means of support to Wellesley College students with demonstrated need, supplementing the College’s own financial aid programs. Founded in 1878, the Society is an independent corporation which has been managed and supported solely through the generosity of alumnae and friends.

“Support from WSAS has definitely made a very big difference in my life. The Amazon gift card from the beginning of the school year has helped me immensely to purchase items that I need. I feel like I can always come to you guys when I need help. Everyone is so warm and friendly!”
