For many students, receiving a scholarship can be the difference between continuing their education or not. Scholarships provide immediate relief for students, not only financially, but also emotionally. The scholarship validates their efforts and sustains them on their road to success.
Donors to BSU’s Sponsor-A-Student fundraising effort play a large part in student successes.
