Legacy Scholar Program

At the University of Arizona, we're proud of our tight-knit community that feels like family. That's why we created the Legacy Scholar Program for students like you with family members who graduated from UA. The Bear Down spirit already lives in you... now it's time to show the world. 

Continue your family's history of excellence and apply.

The UA Alumni Association is made up of graduates who are proud of their alma mater and want to maintain a life-long relationship with the UA. One of the UAAA’s goals is to raise scholarship funds for incoming UA students. 
This year, in partnership with the UA Office of Admissions, we will offer 10 renewable merit-based scholarships each valued at $1,000 to entering freshmen for the 2018-19 school year based on academic excellence, leadership and service. Contingent on your acceptance to and decision to attend the University of Arizona, you are eligible to apply for this award. The GPA required is an unweighted sixth semester of 3.0 or higher. For this scholarship, a legacy is defined as a student whose parent or legal guardian attended and graduated from the University of Arizona. 
Recipients of these scholarships will be required to participate in engagement and networking opportunities to be eligible for renewal. 

Scholarships are available at Scholarship Universe
