Alumni Association Scholarships
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.

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.
“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
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
