Investment in the Intellectually Curious

A vibrant learning environment and competitive scholarships attract the best and brightest students to Ball State. The scholarships created through Ball State Bold will position the university as the singular choice for students seeking academic rigor and programs of distinction.

The establishment of scholarship funds and gifts to this critical need has a direct and immediate impact on our students. For many of them, it can be the determining factor in their decision to attend Ball State. Now, with the overwhelming support of our alumni and friends, the university has additional resources to recruit and retain the best and brightest students.

Donors established more than 200 new scholarships funds, with many of them designated as merit-based awards for high achieving students. Of the 200 funds, 133 were endowed with a minimum investment of $25,000. Endowed accounts are great assets to the university as they provide scholarship support in perpetuity.
