Alumni Referral Scholarship

ARS LogoLycoming has established the Alumni Referral Scholarship to offer alumni the opportunity to do two good deeds at once: help a deserving student achieve their higher education goals and assist in recruiting the next generation of Warriors! The Alumni Referral Scholarship is a grant of $1,000, renewable for four years, as long as the student maintains full-time status and remains within good academic standing. Alumni can help students save as much as $4,000 during the course of their studies at Lycoming.

Who can nominate a prospective student?

All Lycoming alumni may nominate a prospective freshman or transfer student.

How many students can I nominate?

Lycoming alumni may nominate as many students as they would like.

Who may be nominated?

A prospective freshman or transfer student may be nominated at any point during the admissions process; however, the completed application must be received by the posted deadline (listed below). Students must plan to enroll on a full-time basis. Multiple alumni may refer the same prospective student, but he or she will only receive one Alumni Referral Scholarship to pursue a Lycoming degree.

Deadlines for completed Alumni Referral Scholarship applications:

  • Fall Freshman/Transfer Students - February 1st
  • Spring Transfer students - October 1st

How do I nominate a prospective student?

Alumni must complete the Alumni Referral Scholarship form and attach a personal letter of recommendation stating why they are nominating the student, by the posted deadline. The Alumni Scholarship Coordinator will review all nominations that meet the above criteria and will contact all students selected to receive the scholarship. The Office of Alumni Relations will contact alumni who have nominated students.
