CONTINUING THE LEGACY
It’s hard to believe it’s been over 40 years since the Wright State University Alumni Association was founded. Over the past four decades, we have been proudly committed to supporting our alma mater, keeping our alumni connected, and providing scholarships to hundreds of Wright State students.
In today’s economy, as state and federal funding continues to decrease, private dollars for scholarships are needed now more than ever before. You have already shown your pride in Wright State through your membership and support of the Wright State University Alumni Association. Now you can show your commitment to helping Wright State students achieve their dream of a college education.

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.
“If not for my scholarships, I would have had to work more and would not have received the full college experience.”—Jasmine Williams

ALUMNI ASSOCIATION LEGACY SCHOLARSHIP FUND >>
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.
“The Legacy Scholarship made a good choice even easier: “We heard good things from our parents, it’s close to home, and it’s affordable.”—James Trame

LAKE CAMPUS ALUMNI NETWORK SCHOLARSHIP FUND >>
The Lake Campus Alumni Network Scholarship Fund, established in 2011, is the newest of our Alumni Association Scholarships. The fund supports students who wish to pursue a degree from Wright State University Lake Campus.
Celina native Kip Wright knows the importance of Lake Campus to West Central Ohio. It makes a college education possible for countless working people like him. Kip earned an associate and a bachelor’s degree during a career in law enforcement.
Now he’s giving back as a founding member of the Lake Campus Alumni Network and a donor to the Lake Campus Scholarship Fund.
“I’ve worked quite a bit in public service, and I know a lot of people who got their start here at the Lake Campus,” Kip says. “I’ve had people tell me, ‘Boy, if it weren’t for Lake Campus, I probably wouldn’t have gone to college.’”—Kip Wright
