The Donald Y. Leggett Alumni Scholarship

The East Carolina Alumni Association 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 (GPA) of 3.0 or higher.

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).

Supplemental Questions
  1. Are you a legacy Pirate? Are there other Pirate alumni in your family?
  2. If yes, please give name, year graduated, and relationship of each alumni relative.
  3. Please request a recommendation from someone that can speak to your involvement in University/community related extracurricular activities or employment. This will help the Alumni Association in making recipient selections. Uploaded files should be in .doc, .docx, or .pdf format.
  4. What does it mean to you to be an East Carolina University Pirate? We'd like to see your creative expression (poem, essay, sketch, photo collage, video, etc.) - either by attaching an original work in an 8.5x11 format or as a YouTube video link. This is your opportunity to show your Pirate pride!
