Black Alumni Council Book Scholarship
The Ball State Black Alumni Council believes in giving back. Over the past nine years, we have awarded over 125 students with book scholarships. The scholarship recipients have come from various economic backgrounds and they have overcome many hardships to pursue their education at Ball State. With the intersection of financial crises and the COVID-19 pandemic, we are more committed than ever to supporting Black students as they pursue their academic goals and their dream of graduating from Ball State University.
Many of our book scholarship recipients come from low-income, single-parent households. Some students grow up without either parent in the home. Most are first-generation college students. While they are very proud and grateful to be able to attend Ball State, their main concerns are paying for books and having the financial means to finish college. With your financial support, Black students will be able to stress less about their ability to afford textbooks. They will know that Black Alumni and friends and family of Black Alumni are interested in their education as well as their future.
As this fundraising campaign gets underway, we want you to know that no donation will be considered too small or too large. What’s important is that you give your best donation.
There are several giving levels for your financial ability. So please give today. On behalf of our future book scholarship recipients, we thank you for your generous support.
