What is the Legacy Alumni Network?

American University has defined a legacy as an alumna/us or student who is the child, grandchild, parent or grandparent of an American University alumnus/a (undergraduate or graduate program). This is in line with the definition of legacy as specified by the Office of Admissions.
The Legacy Alumni Network (LAN) helps these members of the AU community stay in touch with the university and with other legacies through special events and networking opportunities.


Alumni Association Scholarship 

The Alumni Association Scholarship was created to support students who have a mother, father, or grandparent with a degree from AU. This $5,000 per-year-scholarship is awarded to a freshman legacy student who has attained a minimum 3.5 cumulative high school grade average. The scholarship is renewable for up to four years as long as the recipient retains a cumulative 3.2 GPA. Learn more about the Alumni Association Scholarship.
