College of Health and Human Services


Every gift makes a difference at Bowling Green State University! Your generosity on #BGSUOneDay will provide much-needed financial support for students in the College of Health and Human Services.


Our students are making a positive difference in the lives of individuals, families and communities in the region, with a focus on creating healthy and safe societies. Students learn to address a wide array of factors impacting our health and well-being, which can be biological, socioeconomic, psychosocial, behavioral, cultural or social in nature. The college currently enrolls more than 1,800 undergraduate and 200 graduate students who will soon be entering a variety of health and human service professions.


Scholarship dollars are critical and improve both the diversity and the academic achievement level of our students. Your support also defrays tuition costs for deserving students studying criminal justice, food and nutrition, gerontology, health care administration, medical laboratory sciences, nursing, public health, social work, speech-language pathology and pre-professional degrees in allied health. Your support ensures students continue to have access to the highest education.


Your gifts to the college provide lifelong learning experiences, allow students to focus on their education and prepare them to become leaders in their fields. Experience making a difference for a student TODAY!

Choose how you impact BGSU students:


HHS General Support 

Gifts to this fund strengthen the college by providing support for programmatic needs not covered by state appropriations, and guarantee that our students will receive an exemplary educational experience.


HHS GAP Scholarship

This scholarship is made available by the college's Leadership Council Advisory Board, to provide annual scholarships to qualified students in the college. Contributions to this fund helps bridge the gap between the student's financial need and the amount of federal aid offered.


BGSU’s Speech and Hearing Clinic

Bonnie Valiant is a ’61 graduate of the Communication Sciences and Disorders program. Valiant worked in the greater Chicago area helping to change the lives of thousands of children through her work as a speech and hearing therapist. She continues the tradition of changing lives by contributing to the college. Her contributions, combined with the support of others, help the clinic maintain its cutting-edge services to the public. This collective support also allows for that same cutting-edge, hands-on experience for master’s students in their clinical site training in speech language pathology.


Dr. Linda Petrosino Pillars Grant Program

These funds provide students with financial support to cover extraordinary expenses or fees related to research opportunities, clinical placements, field experiences and internships, master's thesis and dissertation research, and/or provide emergency funding.


HHS Building Project

This fund was established to support laboratory equipment, research and teaching equipment and other building project needs in the Public and Allied Health programs. This project will provide support in establishing a first-class learning and research facility to allow our students and faculty to thrive. State-of-the-art lab equipment and software are key to providing students with the hands-on, active learning experiences they need to gain the knowledge and experience to be successful.


Criminal Justice Program

Established in 1981, this fund provides general support to students, faculty and staff in the Criminal Justice program. With the recent addition of the Forensic Investigations specialization, there are programmatic needs to provide students with high-quality realistic simulations and applied research opportunities in investigations and related criminal justice activities.
