Legacy Scholarship/Stipend Program

The Alumni Legacy Scholarship

The Alumni Legacy Scholarship is a four-year, renewable scholarship for incoming freshman available to the relative of a Boise State alumna or alumnus, who is a current member of the Boise State Alumni Association. The scholarship amount is equal to in-state fees during the fall and spring semester. It was established by the Boise State Alumni Association in 2003 to celebrate family traditions of attending Boise State University. The fund has generated more than $1.9 million in funds since its inception. Alumni association membership dues and the Boise State Auction help to support this fund.

The Alumni Legacy Stipend

The Alumni Legacy Stipend is a one-time $2,000 award. Eligible candidates must be full-time continuing Boise State students who are at least sophomores in class standing with a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.5 and who have at least one relative who is a Boise State alumna/alumnus and is a current Boise State Alumni Association member.  Four stipends are awarded each spring.

Scholarship Application Deadline

Applications MUST BE SUBMITTED online by February 15 for new students and March 15 for continuing students. Applications must be submitted using the Financial Aid Scholarship Application.
