The College of Education and Human Development is a leader at the state and national levels because of our teaching, learning, scholarship, and service. From exercise scientists to middle childhood educators and family studies practitioners, our college provides a well-rounded education with an opportunity to complete field experiences as early as freshman year. Your investment provides vital opportunities from internships to education abroad experiences, strengthening students as professionals in their fields and vital scholarship support.
EDHD Gap Scholarship
Students in the College are faced with urgent financial need to “cross the finish line” to graduation. In most cases, a “gap scholarship” of $500-$1,000 allows a student to persevere to graduation. This fund provides the flexibility to help students who have unexpected financial hardships or extraordinary circumstances that have impacted their ability to afford higher education.
EDHD Gas Card Initiative
With fuel costs rising and inflation increasing, EDHD Dean Dawn Shinew wants to give out an even greater number of gas cards at an increased amount to all students who are completing an internship, practicum, student teaching or other classroom-related experiences at a distance from campus. Your gift to this fund helps accomplish this goal. A gas card can show support for our students for what can be a significant educational expense.
Expedition Fund (Study Abroad)
With pandemic restrictions easing, EDHD students are enthusiastic to make study abroad part of their defining BGSU experience. Your gift will help support students studying abroad at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. The opportunity to experience other cultures plays a critical role in students’ development as global citizens.
