University Women Scholarship for Non-Traditional Women
A scholarship in the amount of $500 has been established by BGSU's University Women's Organization to encourage and assist a part time or full time undergraduate student. The applicant must be female, nontraditional (25 years of age or older), and enrolled in a degree program at Bowling Green State University. To be eligible a student applicant must be a rising junior or senior with a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.0. Applicants can be enrolled in any major at the University. Students will be selected based on academic record, financial need, professional potential, and extracurricular services/activities.

The 2010-2011 scholarship recipient is Rachel Mraz. She is a junior majoring in Early Childhood Education. In her personal and career goal statement she wrote: "I would like to become an early childhood educator. My goal is second or third grade and I would like to teach in an institution that is very diverse and advocates diversity. I personally strive to make the Dean's List every semester and am looking forward to my first Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) case." As a CASA volunteer, Rachel will be an advocate for children in foster homes.
We wish her much success in reaching her career goals.
