The Thompson Scholarship for Working Families provides valuable need-based funding for BGSU students to have access to and achieve their college education. Created by generous gifts from Robert and Ellen (Bowen) Thompson, the scholarship program is designed to help families that may struggle with the cost of higher education. The program supports new freshmen, new transfer students and continuing students.
With the Thompsons’ support, the University has committed to securing additional matching funds to provide qualifying students with $10,000 scholarships through the Thompson Scholarship Program for Working Families. Your support to this scholarship program provides education to students who may otherwise not have that opportunity.
Beyond the financial support of the scholarship, the Thompson Scholarship Programs fund provides holistic support for each recipient and strives to serve as a springboard for growth while creating opportunities to connect, engage and serve.
