Generations of University of Rochester alumni come together through the Colony Club.
The Meliora Alumni Scholarship
The Meliora Alumni Scholarship recognizes the unique commitment that a child or grandchild of a Rochester graduate has to carry on the family tradition while also creating their own legacy. This scholarship typically awards $5,000 to $10,000 towards an undergraduate education. Once legacy students apply for admission to the University, the Meliora Alumni Scholarship application will appear in their online MyROC account.
Generations of families share a special connection to Rochester. Legacy families are undergraduate students and alumni whose parents, grandparents and/or siblings, attended or currently attend the University of Rochester. The Colony Club is an exclusive opportunity for children and grandchildren of Rochester alumni and features a variety of benefits and services to enhance the application experience. Please note: the best time to enroll is during the summer of the applicant’s junior year of high school.
