The FSU Alumni Association Legacy Scholarship program was established in 2010 to encourage the children of Florida State alumni to attend their parent's alma mater and perpetuate the legacy of Florida State within their family. This program was designed to recognize the commitment and support of alumni in choosing to send their children or grandchildren to FSU. Legacy scholarships are funded by gifts to the FSU Alumni Association. Awards are given to incoming freshmen only.
Applications for the Legacy Scholarship are typically available in spring; award recipients are notified in summer.
