Emporia Connection Legacy Scholarship


The Emporia Connection is the official alumni chapter designed to strengthen ties between African American alumni, current and prospective and the University. The group is comprised of six decades of alumni who live throughout the U.S. The Alumni Association had challenged chapters to create a “legacy”- therefore the Emporia Connection Scholarship was born.


The Emporia Connection Legacy Scholarship was originally established to assist African American students attending Emporia State University. However, in compliance with Federal Law, the scholarship may be awarded to any student of any group and all students may apply.

Scholarship Criteria:

  1. Students must be entering freshmen or transfer students.
