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.
Scholarship for the 2017-18 school year have already been awarded. Check back in September 2017 to apply for 2018-19 scholarships.
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.
