Providing opportunities for current and future Ashland students is a great way to pay it forward.
Allow your story to influence the lives of both current and future generations of Eagles. Now is the time to provide opportunities for students that will change the course of their lives. It’s your turn to give back.

Empower an Eagle–

Here’s how it works:

(Only new and transfer undergraduate students who have not previously applied and are not considered legacy applicants are eligible. $500 renewable scholarship is tuition only and cannot surpass tuition cost.)
Ashland University’s GUIDE Network brings mentors and students together. Mentors are able to partner with students to offer experience, wisdom and hard-earned knowledge that will set them up for success.
This unique program allows mentors to connect with the next generation of Eagles and invest in their future. For students, this program offers a unique opportunity to grow both personally and professionally and prepare for the world beyond campus borders.
Future Eagles Legacy Program
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 significant birthdays throughout their lives. When children, stepchildren 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!
Opinion & Feedback Sharing
Eagle Insights is an initiative inviting you to voice your opinion on a variety of alumni-related topics and programs. Your valuable input will shape the future of the alumni experience.
Alumni Connecting Eagles (ACE Program)
Share your Ashland story with current high school seniors who received their acceptance letter, but have not yet decided to attend Ashland. With your help, prospective students feel connected to our community and begin to see themselves as Eagles!
We will provide you with postcards and postage. All you need to do is write two or three lines about your Ashland experience, your life after graduation, or words of encouragement about choosing Ashland.
Stories are powerful things. Your story can make a difference in the life of a student considering calling Ashland home.
