Since 1998, the NSU Alumni Association has awarded Legacy Scholarships to students of Northeastern's alumni. Given annually, this scholarship is awarded to a first-time entering freshmen selected by a committee of Alumni Association board members. The Legacy Scholarship award is $1,500 per year, renewable for up to four years, assuming academic and service requirements are maintained.
Qualified applicants must be high school seniors with a cumulative GPA of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale. Although the scholarship is available for all students, preference will be given to applicants who are the children of active NSU Alumni Association members. Recipients must be full-time NSU students. Students will receive an additional application for this scholarship once they complete the Freshmen Scholarship Application and select the statement: "I have an immediate family member who graduated from or attended NSU."
