BGSU Firelands: 50 Scholarships for 50th Anniversary

Dear BGSU Alumni & Friends

This year marks the 50th Anniversary of BGSU Firelands!

To commemorate this momentous occasion, our goal is to establish at least 50 new scholarships to be awarded to deserving students in 2016. Scholarships will be used toward tuition, fees and books.

For some potential students, financial need is the sole roadblock to fulfillment of their dreams of a college education.

BGSU Firelands offers many scholarships each year, but there are approximately 150 more applicants than available scholarships. Our goal is to close that gap so that financial needs of far more potential students can be met.

Kierston Rospert, a Firelands scholarship recipient, said receiving this private financial support was a tremendous relief that made a very real difference in her life.

"Scholarships, in general, lift a huge weight off of a college student's shoulders. I believe every scholarship given represents a dream one step closer to fulfillment. It would have been considerably more challenging for me to attend classes this year without the generosity of donors. It truly was a relief to know that I could afford school this year without the stress of going into debt!"

Every gift is appreciated and will be personally recognized and listed on the donor wall at this site unless anonymity is requested.   

Donors of $500 or more will be honored and publicly recognized at a special event where each donor will personally meet the recipient of their scholarship. Donors of $1,000 or more will also be recognized as a member of BGSU's Leadership Circle for 2016.  

Your gift could make the difference in the life of a BGSU student forever. Won't you join us?

Thank you in advance for your generosity!
