Alumni Scholarships



 
Since 2005, the Alumni Scholarship program has awarded 197 scholarships totaling more than $260,000. Alumni Scholarships are annually awarded to students who are currently enrolled at East Carolina University as full-time* undergraduates (including freshmen) who have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or higher. Students who currently receive grants and/or scholarships in excess of $6,000 per year, not including student loans, are not eligible for the Alumni Scholarship Program.

*Full-time, as defined by East Carolina University, are students who register for a minimum of 12 credits and continue to carry at least 12 credits through the end of each semester.

Scholarship applications are evaluated based on: demonstrated leadership, service/volunteerism, and recommendation (one signed letter that speaks to the applicant’s involvement in university/community related extracurricular activities or employment).

To apply:

  • Go to the ECU On-line Scholarship Management System
  • In the search bar, type, East Carolina Alumni Association and click on the link.
  • To start an application, click the sign in link at the bottom of the page.
  • Completed applications include a letter of recommendation and creative expression about what it means to you to be an ECU Pirate.

Alumni Scholarship recipients are selected in the spring of each year. Recipients MUST attend the Scholarship Luncheon on April 25, 2015 to receive their scholarship.

Alumni Scholarships are credited directly to the student’s fee bill from the Cashier’s Office. Half of the scholarship will be awarded in fall and half will be awarded in spring. If a student is on a co-op for a semester, a credit will be applied in one lump sum to the student’s fee bill for the semester they return—unless otherwise notified or discussed, this policy stands. If a student graduates early, only under special circumstances may a credit be applied in one lump sum to the student’s fee bill. If the student does not attend ECU for the following academic year, the scholarship must be forfeited.

Applications must be complete and recommendation letters
must be uploaded by Friday, January 30, 2015 at 5:00 p.m.

If you have any questions about the application process, please contact the Alumni Center at 800-ECU-GRAD (328-4723) or ecualumni@ecu.edu.
