Legacy Scholarship Program


The Legacy Scholarship was established by the WMU Alumni Association in 1990 to recognize the loyalty of multi-generational Bronco families. Recipients are awarded a non-renewable scholarship of $1,000, and are selected based on the following criteria. Applicants must be:
  • The child, stepchild, grandchild, step-grandchild, or sibling of a WMU alumna or alumnus
  • Admitted to WMU as a regular undergraduate, degree-seeking student
  • Entering WMU for the first time, as a first-year (freshman) or transfer student
New in 2014, out-of-state students who meet the above criteria are eligible to be awarded a $15,000 Legacy Gold Scholarship.

The deadline to submit an application for a 2014 award has passed. Please check back this fall for details regarding the 2015 application.

If you have any questions, please contact Hardy Figueroa at (269) 387-8774.
