Legacy Families

If you have a relative who also graduated from Drexel University or is currently enrolled at the University, you are part of a Drexel legacy. The Alumni Association recognizes the importance of the legacy families of alumni who have continued the Drexel tradition - including the traditions of Hahnemann, Medical College of Pennsylvania and Woman's Medical College - with special events and programs that celebrate your Drexel connections. As well, the University and the Alumni Association offer specific scholarship opportunities for the children and grandchildren of our alumni.

Legacy Scholarship Opportunities

  • Alumni Association Legacy Scholarship
    Each year, the Drexel University Alumni Association Board of Governors awards scholarships to legacy students based on overall scholastic achievement, student activities and community involvement. Applicants must be children or grandchildren of Drexel alumni who are currently sophomores, pre-juniors or juniors.
  • Drexel Legacy Scholarship (Special Interest)
    The Drexel Legacy Scholarship is offered to children and grandchildren of Drexel University alumni. Legacy scholarship recipients must be enrolled in a full-time undergraduate program. Recipients will receive $1,000 for each quarter they are enrolled full-time in classes. This award will not be applied in excess of 12 academic quarters and pays towards tuition only. Questions should be directed to Undergraduate Admissions at 1.800.2.DREXEL.
