Bulldog Bonus

Bulldog Bonus scholarships worth $2,000 is back for eligible Ferris State University students beginning classes during the Fall 2023 semester.

New first-year or transfer students admitted to Ferris State University could be eligible to receive Bulldog Bonus scholarships worth $2,000 for their Fall 2023 semester classes. The Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid notes dozens already will receive this financial support.

According to Assistant Director of Financial Aid Melanie Mulder, Bulldog Bonus eligibility is straightforward.

“We ask that you gain admission to Ferris by May 2, 2023, take part in a Virtual Financial Aid Bulldog Basics Workshop and file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form, also by May 2,” Mulder said. “For those who act now, taking these steps brings them $2,000 to help get underway with their educational journey at Ferris.”

Two of the free virtual Financial Aid Basics events have taken place in the Fall 2022 semester. Mulder said another three opportunities will follow the session on Dec. 7 in the Spring 2023 semester. All those interested in Bulldog Bonus assistance must complete the required actions by 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday, May 2, 2023.

“We are encouraged by the early response to these virtual programs, which help students identify the steps necessary to join us on campus next fall,” Mulder said. “It is important to note that the Woodbridge N. Ferris Scholarship, the Michigan Achievement Scholarship and federal Pell Grant assistance are other resources available to qualified students, so they can minimize their financial obligations and focus on learning.”

There is a live chat on the Bulldog Bonus page to assist with any questions, with more information available by emailing the Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid.
