Student Scholarships

Ferris State University has students sought out by business and industry before they graduate, with some disciplines having a 100 percent placement rate of those graduates who responded to a graduate follow-up survey. In order to get to that first job interview, they first must gain the educational experiences needed to pursue their chosen career. Scholarship assistance is critical to many Ferris students as they work toward their educational and professional goals. With 82 percent of our students receiving financial aid, the demand for student assistance exceeds the available supply of dollars - projections show this trend will continue.

Now is the time to make a steadfast promise of financial support to deserving students who have earned the right to call themselves a Bulldog. By investing in their potential, we move confidently toward the future and maintain the value of the Ferris degree.

  • By investing in students, we transform the trajectory of the individual.
  • By providing the means for outstanding scholars to reach their potential, we skip a stone into the waters of promise creating unlimited ripples of hope.
  • By demonstrating support for students, Ferris remains competitive to recruit world-class faculty and students.


Supporting extraordinary students is the best way to safeguard Ferris. Your gift will:

  • Make it possible for aspiring Bulldog leaders to have the skills needed to lead.
  • Give tomorrow’s innovators and visionaries the tools to achieve the extraordinary.
