Falcon Club Scholarship and Success Fund

Promoting Student-Athlete Academic and Athletic Success

Falcon Club Scholarship and Success Fund

The Falcon Club Scholarship and Success Fund was created to provide the best possible athletic and academic opportunities for our 400 student-athletes. When you invest in the Falcon Club Scholarship and Success Fund, you are helping us to create the future and continue the tradition of excellence for Falcon Athletics. Your gifts are imperative in allowing us to provide the resources necessary for our student-athletes to truly have a world-class experience.

Investments in the Falcon Club Scholarship and Success Fund have one over-arching purpose:  to provide our student-athletes with the maximum amount of scholarship support allowed by the NCAA in every sport we sponsor. These scholarships allow BGSU to recruit, retain and field outstanding student-athletes needed to compete in the MAC and WCHA. 

With a culture committed to cultivating champions in academics, sports and life, BGSU Athletics honors the past while creating the future. We are proud of the following accomplishments from 2016-2017, all of which were made possible with the support of Falcon Club members:

  • More than 160 student-athletes were recognized as Academic All-Conference and the department’s grade point average of 3.24 is the highest in the school’s history.

  • We boast the highest Graduation Success Rate among MAC schools (89 percent).

  • Three teams — Men’s Cross Country, Women’s Golf and Gymnastics — were publically recognized by the NCAA in 2016 for having Academic Progress Rate scores among the top 10 percent in the country.

  • The Men’s Soccer team finished second in the MAC, which is its highest finish since 2002.

  • Gymnastics placed second in the MAC championship.

  • Volleyball reached the MAC tournament semifinals for the first time since 2012.

  • Hockey advanced to the Championship game of the WCHA tournament.
