Make an impact!

Have you ever wanted to name a scholarship and have an instant impact on the life of a current or future Bemidji State student-athlete? Now you can!

Create a named scholarship by pledging $1,000 or more per year for three years and impact present and future BSU student-athletes. Impact Scholarships can be designated to Beaver Pride, which will be awarded by the Director of Athletics to the program with the greatest need, or to the BSU team of your choice.

Impact Scholarships are for immediate use. All funds contributed to the scholarship are awarded every year. This is your opportunity to make an immediate impact on BSU Athletics!

Bemidji State’s student-athletes have competed at an incredible level for decades. Even so, BSU currently ranks last among the 16 NSIC member institutions in available scholarship funds. The Impact Scholarship initiative is helping BSU bridge that gap.

All donations toward Impact Scholarships are 100% tax deductible. Employer contribution matching can be used toward the creation of an Impact Scholarship.

For more information on Impact Scholarships and to find out how you can be forever linked to a BSU student-athlete, contact Jesse Katz, the Director of Annual Giving for Athletics, at 218-755-2827 or
