Alumni Legacy Scholarship

The YSU Office of Alumni Engagement annually awards four $1,000 academic scholarships to children of YSU alumni (at least one of the applicant's parents must be a YSU Alumnus or alumna).  Award will be utilized toward their tuition, course or lab fees, parking, library and/or computer fees. Fines are ineligible to be paid from this scholarship and direct payment will not be made to students. Current YSU students must attend full-time and maintain a minimum 3.0 GPA to be eligible for the award. Incoming freshmen must be registered full-time. Students must qualify each semester to ensure that they are in attendance full time at YSU. An essay (500 words or less) on why this type of scholarship is important and why the applicant will benefit from it will be required with the application. Applications without the essay will be disqualified. The scholarship must be used within one year of awarding, beginning fall semester.
