BSU was there when I needed it the most, and I thank donors for believing in me. Some of us don’t always end up having the same playing field or opportunities as others. The scholarship was the key to my success and making the dean’s list.”

Financial Support for Out-of-State Students

Did you know that the cost of attending BSU is nearly the same as — or in some cases, less than — the cost of attending college in your own state?

Your cost will rival the cost of attending a public university near you after applying financial aid, the $5,000 per year Horace Mann Scholarship or the New England Regional Discount Program.
