Since the Legacy Scholarship program began in 1988, 56 relatives of alumni have received help in financing their Longwood education.

Longwood University takes great pride in our students and rewards those who most exemplify the Longwood spirit in academics, involvements, and citizen leadership.

The Alumni Legacy Scholarship is an alumni-funded scholarship given to one returning student and one incoming student. (Including transfer students)

The recipients must have a family relative that is a Longwood Alumni and the recipients are selected based on a combination of their academic standing, activities, and their personal vision of Citizen Leadership.
