Applications now available for 2016-17 Legacy Scholarships

The BAA has begun accepting applications for Legacy Scholarships for the 2016-17 school year.  The process is open to all undergraduates (including incoming freshmen) who are the children or grandchildren of Baylor alumni families and are enrolled or admitted into Baylor University.

At this point, we anticipate that each scholarship will be for $1,000, payable in two installments directly to the university.  The total amount that will be distributed for the upcoming year has not yet been determined, but we’re hoping to increase the amount over the current school year, when we paid out $57,500 to 56 students.  If you are interested in contributing to the BAA’s Legacy Scholarship Fund, you can do that here.

The application deadline is 11:59 p.m. on May 1, 2016.  The application process is totally online and students may attach screenshots and other documents directly to the form.  If two or more siblings are attending Baylor at the same time, they are all welcome to apply.

Late or incomplete applications will not be considered by the committee.  You will receive a copy of your application by e-mail when you hit Submit, and we will notify all applicants by regular mail or e-mail when we make our final decisions.

Please share this information with Baylor legacy students and their families; BAA membership is not a requirement for applying but notification of this process is primarily being sent to BAA members.  You can share with your social-media networks, forward a copy of Between the Lines when it is published, or just forward the link to potential applicants.
