The John B. Ervin Scholars Program

For more than 25 years, Washington University in St. Louis has offered talented students the opportunity to participate in a remarkable scholar community. The John B. Ervin Scholars Program honors the memory of a nationally renowned educator and community leader who believed in giving students a first-rate education. He also believed in fostering other qualities in these students, including leadership, community service and diversity. Today, more than 600 John B. Ervin Scholars have graduated from Washington University in St. Louis. 


For students who embody the spirit of Dr. Ervin, the Ervin Scholars Program offers annually renewable:

  • multiple full-tuition scholarships with $2,500 stipends
  • multiple partial-tuition scholarships

Ervin Applicants may also apply for other programs and scholarships that match their interests. This highly competitive program is open to U.S. Citizens, regardless of race. 

A dedicated Ervin staff helps to nurture and support students, mentoring them as they further develop leadership skills and prepare for important, meaningful careers and lives of contribution. Ervin Scholars get to know each other through social gatherings, retreats, and service projects. In fact, Ervin Scholars regard the experience as more than a program: They feel as though they are part of a warm and supportive family.
