What is 2020 Legacy Scholars Program?
The 2020 Legacy Scholars Program is a student giving campaign to build Shark Pride, while supporting NSU students.
How it Works
- Students can donate $1.00 or more each semester through the end of November and March to any participating NSU student organization of their choice.
- For every dollar raised at or above $250, NSU will match the amount up to a maximum of $2,500.
- Once an organization has raised $250 or more, the organization is eligible to establish its own '2020 Legacy Scholarship'.
- The scholarship - will be awarded to a member of that student organization for the following semester and will go towards tuition or housing. The recipient is selected by an independent scholarship selection committee.
- Scholarship awards range from $500-$5,000 and may be awarded to multiple members of an organization.
- A listing of the "Top 10 Organizations of the Week" will be posted in the Don Taft University Center, tallying the amount of money each organization has raised.
- Each student who donates will have a "Shark" added to the board with their name on it in order to "Fill the Tank."
- Students and Alumni who donate $20.20 or more may also receive a 2020 Legacy Scholars t-shirt
- Once an organization has established a scholarship, their alumni can start donating to the organization’s scholarship fund as well.
