The Alumni Legacy Scholarship

For your children, grandchildren and siblings

Did you graduate with a four year degree from UW-Green Bay and your son or daughter is a new freshman or transfer student for the 2018-2019 school year? Each year, the Alumni Association awards a $2,000 scholarship for a new legacy freshman or transfer student. Starting in the 2018-2019 school year, the Alumni Association will also award 15 - $500 scholarships to this group of students. See the application criteria for specific details.

To qualify, the student must be an incoming UW-Green Bay freshman or incoming transfer student; a parent, guardian, step-parent, sibling, step-sibling, grandparent or step-grandparent must have graduated with an official degree from UW-Green Bay (associate, undergraduate or graduate degree); and the applicant must have a minimum cumulative high school GPA of 2.75 on a 4.0 scale (or its equivalent).

Regarding the $2,000 scholarship, $500 will be dispersed the second semester of each academic year not to exceed $2,000 in four years. Regarding the $500 scholarships, $500 will be awarded the second semester of each student’s first academic year.
