Legacy Scholarship

This scholarship benefits students following in the footsteps of an alumni family member (parent, guardian, step-parent, sibling, step-sibling or grandparent) by choosing and attending UW-Green Bay. This year over 700 UW-Green Bay students are part of a legacy.

The Legacy Scholarship has grown from benefitting one student to sixteen students on an annual basis. Our hope is this scholarship will one day benefit every legacy student.
