ASU Alumni Association seeks applicants for Legacy Scholarships

Application deadline: March 20, 2015

Feb. 13, 2015/Tempe, Ariz. – The ASU Alumni Association is accepting applications for its Legacy Scholarships, which are presented to relatives of ASU Alumni Association members. Legacy Scholarship applicants must demonstrate evidence of academic success, a strong commitment to community service and/or university involvement, and dedication to the achievement of their personal and educational goals. Each recipient receives $1,000 during the year – $500 per semester.

The ASU Alumni Association began awarding Legacy Scholarships during the 2010-2011 academic year. As part of the university’s commitment to promoting access to education, the ASU Alumni Association distributes more than half of the scholarship awards based on need.

Christine K. Wilkinson, president of the ASU Alumni Association, said the Legacy Scholarship program is key to engaging multiple generations of Sun Devil families.

“The Alumni Association offers many benefits to its members, and this is one of the important ways we support them and add to our Sun Devil family,” Wilkinson said. “This program truly enables the Alumni Association to pass on the values and traditions of ASU to future generations.”

The application deadline for the 2015-16 academic year is 5 p.m., March 20, 2015. Applicants will be notified of their scholarship status by late April. To apply for a Legacy Scholarship or for more information, visit https://alumni.asu.edu/support/scholarships
