Scholarships External to BGSU

Scholarships external to BGSU are scholarships that are NOT offered by BGSU.  Be sure to check with your local library, churches, employers, civic organizations, and high school guidance counselor for more scholarship opportunities.  

Most external scholarships are competitive, and require the student to write a compelling personal statement about why they should receive the award.  For more information about scholarships external to BGSU, please visit the external scholarships website

If you receive a scholarship external to BGSU, please provide a copy of the award letter to the Financial Aid Office at BGSU Firelands in Foundation Hall, Office 103D.

Important points to remember: 

  • Don’t apply to scholarships that charge a fee to apply.
  • Learn to recognize scams. If you are unsure if a scholarship is legitimate, check with your high school guidance counselor or the financial aid office.
  • You don’t have to pay money to win a scholarship. If it’s too good to be true, it probably is!
