The BSU Women's Club views education as an important philanthropy. Our members actively give their time and effort to fund scholarships for non-traditional students at Ball State University.
Scholarship consideration is based on scholastic ability, industry, integrity, financial need, and the promise of being enabled by continuing education to become a leading citizen in the community, state, and nation.
Our student scholarships were made possible in part by the generosity of these outstanding women:
Complete 24 credit hours, of which at least 15 were through Ball State University;
Have a 3.0 grade point average;
Enrolled for at least 6 credit hours per semester (half-time or full-time student status);
Pursuing an undergraduate or graduate degree at Ball State University;
Complete the FAFSA by April 15—If you cannot complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid), you will not be eligible for this scholarship.
Submit the BSUWC scholarship application form and response pages by 5 PM on May 1st.
Finalists will be contacted for an interview.
Preference for these scholarships is given to nontraditional students who are enrolled in an undergraduate program at Ball State and are age 24 or older.
See FAQs below for more details about who is eligible to apply.

FAQs About Scholarship Eligibility
Who is a non-traditional student?

Which degree programs qualify?
You must be enrolled in an undergraduate degree program or graduate degree program at Ball State University, at least six credit hours per semester. Certificate programs are NOT included.
You also must have completed at least 24 credit hours (at least 15 credit hours through Ball State) to be eligible.
Are commuter students eligible? What about online students?
Yes! Commuter students and online students are eligible. Remember that you must be taking at least six credit hours per semester.
