Legacy Families

Niagara Legacy Families - Scholarship Opportunities!

Niagara University takes great pride in the long standing tradition it shares with generations of families who call NU their alma mater. Legacy families are undergraduate students and alumni whose families, including parents, grandparents and/or siblings, attended or currently attend Niagara University.

For the generations of families whose legacies include a Niagara University graduate, we are proud to offer new scholarship opportunities. Starting in fall 2020, our Alumni Legacy Scholarships will be awarded to qualified students who have a parent, stepparent, grandparent, aunt, uncle, and/or sibling that graduated from Niagara University.

Qualified legacy students will receive a $1,000 per year scholarship, and those with top academic credentials are eligible for one of five $5,000 Legacy Scholarships. If more than one student from a legacy family enrolls and attends Niagara at the same time, the first student’s scholarship will be increased to $2,000. (Total award cannot exceed $25,000 when combined with other institutional aid.)

Other Benefits:

  • Priority application review
  • Legacy family brick
  • Legacy family luncheon and pinning ceremony (held during New Student Orientation) - Cancelled for 2020, contact alumni@niagara.edu for your family legacy gift!
