One of the missions of the BSU Women's Club is to offer scholarships to non-traditional students. These awards are based on scholastic ability, industry, integrity, financial need and promise of being enabled by continuing education to become a leading citizen in the community, state and nation.

Scholarship applications are available online.


Three scholarships, each in the amount of $1000, are awarded annually in memory of these women and their dedication and service to the BSUWC Scholarship Committee:
  • Bernadette Perham
  • Sandra Worthen
  • Margaret Bumb
