A Legacy Program That’s Different
Scott Jaschik, Inside Higher Ed
McDaniel College has a policy on legacy preferences in admissions, but it’s different from the norm.
It started its legacy program not with alumni children, but with educators’ children, in 2017. McDaniel gives $30,000 a year for four years to anyone whose parents work at a K-12 school or at a community college. In 2019, it added two other legacy programs for veterans/active-duty military and for alumni.
