- African-American Alumni Society Scholars Fund
- Alumni Association Legacy Scholarship Fund
- Cleveland Alumni Network Scholarship Fund
- College of Nursing & Health Alumni Society
- Fraternity Sorority Alumni Society
- Lake Campus Alumni Network Scholarship Fund
- Nonprofit Leadership Alliance Alumni Society Scholarship
- Social Work Alumni Society Scholarship Fund
We hope you choose to support Wright State students through your gifts to any (or all) of these Alumni Association scholarship funds.
AFRICAN-AMERICAN ALUMNI SOCIETY SCHOLARS FUND
The African-American Alumni Society Scholars Fund supports Raider Country students of African or African-American descent. Members of the society established the scholarship in 2005, and are currently working to endow the fund while continuing to sustain current-use scholarships.
“This scholarship affords me the opportunity to continue to strive for my dreams and is a reminder that my educational endeavors and journey are not taken alone”—Ebony Davenport
Legacy Scholarships support students who are immediate family members of Wright State graduates and eligible members of the Wright State University Alumni Association. The fund was created in 1994, but our Alumni Association has been committed to supporting scholarships for Wright State students since 1972—shortly after its founding.
“Wright State is already giving me a quality, affordable education, and with the help of this scholarship, I will be able to graduate debt-free.” —Josiah Tritle ('16) (pictured with sister Sarah Tritle ('17))
CLEVELAND ALUMNI NETWORK SCHOLARSHIP FUND
The Cleveland Alumni Network Scholarship Fund, established in 2014, is our newest Alumni Association Scholarship. The fund supports students from the Cleveland, OH/Cuyahoga County area to pursue their education at Wright State University.
"As the newest scholarship, the Cleveland Network supports students from Cuyahoga County who have committed themselves to receive a sound Wright State education. We are proud to have the opportunity to financially assist those students who become proud WSU alumni and return to Northeast Ohio to 'pay it forward' to future Raiders that call Cleveland home. The Network believes this scholarship to be the framework in building a strong and lasting alumni network." —Catherine Heckman, Cleveland Alumni Network President
COLLEGE OF NURSING & HEALTH ALUMNI SOCIETY
The primary focus of the College of Nursing and Health Alumni Society is to assist in mentorship, fellowship, education, and lifelong professional development of students and alumni, including student preceptors who serve as mentors to active undergraduate and graduate nursing students. With these goals and their collective dedication to the College, its faculty and, most importantly, its students in mind, the College of Nursing and Health Alumni Society established and supports this scholarship.
FRATERNITY & SORORITY ALUMNI SOCIETY
The foundation of the college experience is a good education and fraternity and sorority life is a plus that will help heighten a student’s college experience. The Fraternity Sorority Alumni Society (FSAS) scholarship was created so alumni of Fraternity and Sorority life could help offset the cost of education for Wright State students who are members in good standing of an Interfraternity Council, National Pan-Hellenic Council or National Pan-Hellenic Conference organization on campus.
LAKE CAMPUS ALUMNI NETWORK SCHOLARSHIP FUND
The Lake Campus Alumni Network Scholarship Fund was established in 2011 and is one of the Alumni Association's newest funds. The fund support students who wish to pursue a degree from Wright State University – Lake Campus and are a Wright State graduate or the relative of a Wright State graduate. In 2013, the fund awarded its first scholarships to Lake Campus students.
“Without scholarships like this, my path to my career would be impossible.” —Katelynn McDaniel '16
NONPROFIT LEADERSHIP ALLIANCE ALUMNI SOCIETY SCHOLARSHIP FUND
The Nonprofit Leadership Alliance Scholarship Fund, established in 2012, is one of our newest Alumni Association Scholarships. The fund supports students admitted to the Nonprofit Leadership Alliance certificate program. The society is currently working to endow the fund while continuing to sustain current-use scholarships.
"Education is so important. Those of us who are alumni of Wright State and employed in the nonprofit field are proud that we are able to create this scholarship to support NLA students."—Sarah Williams ('04)
SOCIAL WORK ALUMNI SOCIETY SCHOLARSHIP FUND
The Social Work Alumni Society Scholarship Fund, established in 2010, is one of our newest Alumni Association Scholarships. The fund supports students admitted to the Social Work program in Wright State’s College of Liberal Arts. The society is currently working to endow the fund while continuing to sustain current-use scholarships.
“Because of the scholarship, I was able to fulfill my dream of graduating in 2013. Knowing that the Alumni Association believed in me enough to give me this kind of support gave me the confidence to believe in myself.” —Sherry Greene ('13)
