Who We Are
WSU Alumni Association Legacy Scholarship
Legacy Scholarship Information
Funded by annual contributions to the Wright State University Foundation and by special fund-raising events sponsored by the Alumni Association, Alumni Networks and Societies, the Legacy Scholarship Fund has provided student scholarships since 1994. Legacy Scholarships support students who are the immediate family members (spouse, child, legal dependent, stepchild or grandchild) of a Wright State graduate who is a current gold level member (in at least their third consecutive year of gold membership) or a life gold level member (paid-in-full if applicable) at the time of application of the WSU Alumni Association. The Wright State Alumni Association Legacy Scholarship is NOT AUTOMATIC and students must re-apply each year. For more information, contact the Office of Alumni Relations at (937) 775-2620 or the Office of Raider Connect at (937) 775-4000.
In 2014 the Alumni Association's Legacy Scholarship Ad-Hoc Committee reviewed the Legacy Scholarship Application Process, how applicants were selected, and the award amounts. Based on the committee's recommendation, the Alumni Association adopted a holistic model that evaluates each applicant's academic performance, community involvement, extra-curricular experiences, their essay, and need.
In addition, the committee build a sustainable award model that promotes academic progress from a student's first year to their fourth year of their undergraduate career.
