Ensuring your information is updated is a great way to stay engaged with the University and fellow alumni. For example, we want to ensure you’re receiving the latest Accent Magazine and stories via email so you’re always connected. Or, if you’re celebrating the birthday of a child or grandchild, it might be time to ask us if they are enrolled in the Future Eagles Legacy Program. And if you’re planning out your calendar, ensure your information is correct in our system so you won’t miss even one moment of what we have planned for Homecoming this year.
The Future Eagles Legacy Program recruits and recognizes children, stepchildren and grandchildren of Ashland alumni.
As part of the program, legacies are recognized at birth and again on their significant birthdays throughout their lives. When children, step-children or grandchildren apply to Ashland University, they receive a $1,000 legacy scholarship, which is renewable by maintaining satisfactory academic progress.
On average, 214 legacy students are enrolled each year in classes at Ashland!
Honor a person you know who is making a difference in the world!
At Ashland, our focus is on the individual. One way we celebrate individuals is to recognize achievement across a broad spectrum of career paths, ages, relationships to the university and callings to serve both in our community and across the globe. This is what the Alumni Awards is all about.
Every year we give four awards recognizing professional achievement and service to others. One of these awards celebrates alumni under the age of 36 who are making a significant impact in the world.
Was there a professor who changed your trajectory? Nominate them for the Dr. Glenn L. Clayton Award. Know someone who is not an alumni, but has lived out the values of Ashland University? There is an award for this as well.
An alumni award is the perfect way to honor a person whose story has set the stage for your own. Learn more about the individual awards below—and then nominate someone today!
