The Silver Bears Scholarship endowment was established by a group of WLU alumni known as the “Silver Bears”. This alumni group was open to graduates who were 50 years or older. They held an annual reunion weekend on campus and hosted a variety of social activities. The Silver Bears decided to contribute to a fund to help WLU students by providing scholarship assistance. The scholarship fund will help students who are the children or grandchildren of a West Liberty Alumni.
The children and grandchildren of West Liberty University alumni will be awarded with a scholarship of $1,500 per year ($750 per semester).
Requirements: Eligible applicants must be the child or grandchild of an alumni of West Liberty University. Preference will be given to those who have both a parent and a grandparent alum.
