The Alumni Leadership Scholars, established in 1983, is a scholarship program coordinated by the WKU Alumni Association. The program funds scholarship for students through an endowment housed in the College Heights Foundation. Each student receives a four-year renewable scholarship totaling $8,000 ($2,000 per year). The recipients must remain in good standing with the university and take part in a program that focuses on campus and community leadership and philanthropy opportunities.
Currently, 16 of the scholars are designated as the Calvin M. and Rosella Spivey Isbell Scholars and one scholar is designated as the Bob and Norma Jean Kirby Scholar. In addition, the Society of African American Alumni funds scholarships for up to four students in the program. Scholarships are distributed in $1,00 increments each semester, and grades are reviewed at the end of each semester.
