Michigan university offering scholarships for new students to live on campus, attend financial aid workshops

Big Rapids, MI – Ferris State University is offering two new scholarships totaling $4,000 that are available to students who register to live on campus and attend a free financial aid workshop.

Last month, the university announced the availability of the Bulldog Scholarships and Bulldog Housing Scholarships to incoming freshmen and transfer students for the fall 2022 semester.

Scholarship funding is divided into $2,000 for a Bulldog Scholarship and $2,000 for a Bulldog Housing Scholarship, according to the university.

The Bulldog Bonus is available to students who register and attend a free virtual financial aid workshop on February 16th. Students can register for the workshops here. A workshop was also held on December 1.

To be eligible for the scholarship, students must be accepted into the degree-granting program at Ferris State’s main campus in Big Rapids or at Kendall College of Art and Design.

Students are also required to submit and submit a valid Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form for the 2022-23 school year using the Ferris State University school code, 002260.

The Bulldog Housing Bonus is available to students who attend a virtual housing information session and submit an on-campus housing contract for the Fall 2022 semester. Students must be accepted into the Ferris degree scholarship program.

Virtual housing information sessions are scheduled for January 13, January 20, and February 10, 2022, according to the statement. Housing contracts for the fall 2022 semester opened on December 1, 2021.

The scholarships are an exciting new opportunity for incoming freshmen and transfer students at Ferris State University, said Janine Ward Rove, Vice President for Student Affairs.

“We want to encourage students to find and fund their future at Ferris by creating the Bulldog Scholarship,” Ward Rove said in a prepared statement.

“We recognize that these are important steps that our students and their parents are already taking. With the Bulldog Scholarships, we have added an incentive to start early. Completing these steps as soon as possible allows students to focus on finishing their final high school year knowing they are ready to be a Bulldog with scholarship support. tuition to make obtaining a Ferris degree more expensive.”

For both scholarships, if students complete all requirements by February 1, 2022, they will receive the maximum available scholarship amount, according to the statement.

More information about both programs is available on the university’s website, here.
