Legacy Scholarships

Scholarships can make the difference in students’ lives. They make college affordable. They allow students to focus more on their education and less on how they will pay for it. Established in 1944, Alumni Association legacy scholarships reward the children, spouses and other family members of alumni with beneficial scholarships. In 2016-17, 56 students received more than $33,000 in scholarships.

Legacy scholarship applications for the 2018-19 school year closed on Friday, Dec. 1, 2017.

Applicants must be Washburn alumni or legacy students. Undergraduate students, graduate students, international students, part-time and full-time students and first-year School of Law students who meet the criteria may apply. Scholarship awards are disbursed in two payments - one in the fall and one in the spring.

Note: Filing for assistance through Washburn’s Financial Aid Office does not constitute your application for an Alumni Association scholarship. You must file a separate online application through the Alumni Association. A separate copy of your unofficial transcripts must be provided to the Alumni Association, even if copies have already been provided to the university for the admissions process.

Did You Know?

There are many ways to help fund legacy scholarships. A portion of Alumni Association membership dues, proceeds from the Washburn University license plate program and registration fees for Alumni Association events help fund the scholarships. You may also chose to make a gift directly to the Alumni Association Scholarship Fund.
