LSU establishes legacy scholarship program
BATON ROUGE - As part of an effort to reconnect the LSU family, the LSU Board of Supervisors has approved the Louisiana Tiger Legacy Scholarship Program, which will begin with the summer/fall 2017 incoming class.
The academic, merit-based scholarship will be awarded to incoming, full-time, Louisiana resident freshman or transfer students whose parent either graduated from or are currently employed at LSU's flagship campus.
LSU President F. King Alexander, in a news release, says the new scholarship is designed to reconnect with LSU alumni and "build loyalty across several generations."
The incoming freshman recipient is eligible for a $500, $750 or $1,000 scholarship depending on ACT or SAT equivalent scores. Transfer students, with at least 30 credit hours and a GPA between 3.0 GPA or above, are eligible for $750 or $1,000 awards.
