Alumni Legacy Scholarship
The Alumni Legacy Scholarship is awarded to the sons and daughters of Marist graduates who have shown outstanding academic and leadership qualities throughout their high school careers and possess the potential to succeed at Marist. A scholarship is awarded annually to an incoming freshman or transfer student at the start of his/her fall semester.
All sons and/or daughters of Marist graduates, who have been admitted by the Office of Admissions and plan to enter the College in the fall as a freshman or transfer student, automatically receive an application by mail in late April or early May. Applications are reviewed by a committee comprised of several members of the Alumni Association Executive Board, one admission counselor, and the Executive Director of Alumni Relations. Awards are renewed for up to three additional years provided the recipients remain in good academic standing. Application deadline and requirements vary each year. For further information and a pdf copy of the application, please go to www.marist.edu/financaid/alumscholarship
. Please contact the Office of Alumni Relations with any questions at MaristAlumni@marist.edu
or (845) 575-3283.
At a recent Marist Alumni Executive Board Meeting, past president and Greystone Board member, Jim Daly ’72, announced a fundraising challenge to help build the endowment of the Alumni Legacy Scholarship Fund. As a former Dean of Admission at Marist, Jim has always been passionate about helping young adults achieve their educational goals. Jim offered to match all gifts received from Marist alumni for the scholarship over the next three years one-to-one up to $25,000. Building this special endowment fund will increase the award amounts for future student recipients. Currently, assistance is being provided for four students each year.
