Established by the IUP Alumni Association, the tuition scholarship will be awarded beginning in the fall of 2017 to incoming students who are children and grandchildren of alumni and who meet eligibility requirements that include participation in leadership activities and a minimum QPA of 3.0. Selected students will receive a one-time award of $2,500.

“Ten scholarships will be available for the fall of 2017. When students enroll at IUP, they become a member of a network for life. Their status might change from students to alumni upon their graduation, but once they choose to attend, they’re part of the family. The IUP Alumni Association is so pleased to be able support the journey of new family members in this very meaningful way,” said Phil Carrai ’83, past president of the IUP Alumni Association Board of Directors.

Alumni who are assisting their sons and daughters in their college search can find opportunities for campus visits and more through IUP’s undergraduate admissions office.

The IUP Alumni Association offers a variety of benefits opportunities. Participation in benefits opportunities helps to fund a variety of programs available for alumni, including the Legacy Scholarship.
