Additional Scholarships

First-Generation Student Book Scholarship 

BGSU is committed to helping first-generation college students succeed. Programs such as the Generation Falcon Summer Program help retain participants at a higher level than their peers. The First-Generation Student Book Scholarship, for students who participate in the Gen Falcon Program, helps cover some of their book expenses.

Thompson Scholarship for Working Families

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.

Last academic year, administrative staff members provided six- $1,000 scholarships to deserving BGSU students who are committed to leadership and service on campus and in the community. Administrative Staff Council seeks to increase its impact on BGSU students by growing the scholarship. Please join us in making a gift on BGSU One Day.
