Support the BSS Community Engagement Scholarship!

Did you know:

  • 58 percent of college students are first generation (neither mother or father graduated from a four year university)
  • 70 percent of college students work full time and 4 out of 5 work at least part time just to make ends meet
  • Nearly 50 percent of students on Chico State campus suffer from food insecurity
  • Less than 3 percent of foster youth graduate from college

With these daunting statistics, it is not hard to imagine the difficulties college students face when simply trying to educate themselves. No group is more aware of the real life struggles of our students than the faculty whom have daily interactions. The students basic financial needs going unmet moved several BSS Faculty and donors to generously fund a “needs based” scholarship to help alleviate the unnecessary financial stress on already stressed students. 

This newly formed scholarship, named the BSS Community Engagement Scholarship was awarded for the first time this fall to one very deserving student. This scholarship was established to provide recognition to dedicated students who have declared a major in the College of Behavioral and Social Sciences and has a demonstrated financial need for support and dedication to serving their community. 

Can you imagine the different college experience our students would have if their biggest concern is actually assignments, reports, and finals rather than worrying where money for books, food or rent will come from? It is the College’s hope that the number of these scholarships can increase from 1 to 2 or even 5! With your help and generosity, we can truly make a difference in our student’s lives.
