Academic Scholarships

Bloomsburg has always strived to provide a quality education that is accessible to students from all walks of life. Today, financial realities strain that commitment. Rising operational costs and limited public funding for schools puts a heavy financial burden upon many students and families. Soaring tuition costs create a seemingly insurmountable barrier that blocks access to education and imposes limits on future career and personal opportunities.

Bloomsburg University scholarships help remove this barrier, giving deserving students opportunities to achieve their educational goals.

Establish a Scholarship

  • Help the university remain competitive.
  • Create a diverse learning community.
  • Relieve debt and create opportunity for students.

Endowed Scholarships

Endowed scholarship funds are permanent and perpetual. The principal gift is invested in our foundation’s endowment, and a portion of the earnings generated funds a scholarship award. The principal remains untouched, allowing the endowment to last in perpetuity.

Your Personal Gift

Creating a scholarship fund is a very personal decision. Such a gift allows you to create a legacy in your own life and personally impact the lives of the students you help. When establishing a scholarship fund, you can:

  • Direct your gift to areas of interest that support undergraduates or graduates in a specific program.
  • Specify scholarship criteria important to you.
  • Name your scholarship in memory or in honor of an individual, business or organization.
  • Receive possible tax benefits, when applicable.

Athletic Scholarships

When we think about Husky pride, we often think about a historic game, outstanding performance or championship victory. But Husky pride is also about celebrating what happens off of the field—celebrating what our student-athletes have accomplished professionally and personally.

Like many of their peers, student-athletes feel a financial burden when it comes to higher education. Rising operational costs and decreased public funding for schools have affected them as much as anyone . . . maybe more.

Athletic scholarships give our athletes the financial security they need, while recognizing their hard work and maintaining our program’s competitive edge.

Establish a Scholarship

  • Help the athletics department remain competitive.
  • Give students added financial security and relief from part-time work schedules.
  • Recognize and reward high-achieving athletes.
  • Allow students to continue playing the sports they love.

Endowed Athletic Scholarships

Endowed athletic scholarships are permanent and perpetual. The principal gift is invested, and a portion of the interest funds the athletic scholarship award. The principal remains untouched, allowing the endowment to last in perpetuity.

  1. Named Endowed Athletic Scholarships

    • Single gift or annual installments over five years

Annual Athletic Scholarships

Annual athletic scholarships are funds established for immediate use. They do not earn additional interest income. These scholarships provide immediate impact, as funds are disbursed to the student recipient in the semester immediately following the donor’s contribution.

    • Specify scholarship criteria important to you.
    • Name your scholarship in honor or in memory of an individual.
