Legacy Scholarship

About the Alumni Legacy Endowed Scholarship Fund

In 1994, Alumni President George Meredith and the Alumni Association Board with the approval of the Association established the Alumni Legacy Endowed Scholarship Fund.  The Fund represents a major commitment by Alumni to raise $1,000,000 for the expressed purpose of awarding scholarships to the descendants of Delaware State University Graduates.

The Endowment’s Mission is to:

  • Preserve the history of the University
  • Provide financial support to deserving descendant students
  • Offer Alumni incentive to raise funds
  • Attract talented, second  generation plus students to the University
  • Encourage alumni to send their       offspring to their Alma Mater
  • Enhance recruitment, retention, and commitment to our University
