Gustavus Alumni Referrals

Recommend high school students who you think would make great Gusties!

As alumni, you play an invaluable role in the recruitment of future generations of Gusties, and we are incredibly grateful that you think so highly of your alma mater as to recommend it to others!

This form serves several purposes, so please use it to recommend any high school student you think would be a great fit at Gustavus while making sure to complete the check boxes at the bottom of the form. The Office of Admission will be sure to be in touch with prospective students referred through this form as they navigate the college search process, and we encourage you to also check in with these students from time to time to offer advice and encouragement.

As you know, the Alumni Referral Scholarship program allows you to nominate a student applying for admission to Gustavus in the current year for a $1000/year scholarship if:

  • They apply by November 1
  • Are admitted to Gustavus
  • Choose to attend by the May 1 deadline

***Referral names must be received by the Office of Admission no later than November 1 in order to qualify them for this special scholarship program. Scholarship dollars cannot be granted retroactively for this program, so please don't delay!

Students with immediate family members who have graduated from Gustavus are not eligible for the Alumni Referral Scholarship, but will instead be automatically awarded the Gustavus Legacy Scholarship, and students are only eligible for one referral scholarship. Students not applying for admission in the current year will be added to our database and included in communications from the Office of Admission.

Thank you again for helping us shape the future of Gustavus and find the best and brightest young people to join our community - Go Gusties!

This Alumni Referral Scholarship Form will be available Summer of 2019.  It is now closed for the term.

Please contact admission@gustavus.edu with further questions.
