The Black Student Union (BSU) Scholarship Endowment is the first student-led, Black-serving scholarship at Seattle University. The scholarship is intended to increase the enrollment of Black and African-American students and help them thrive in the academic world with fewer financial burdens.
Seattle University's BSU is a group dedicated to creating a safe space for Black and Brown students at SU, to connect with and support other Black students as they navigate a predominantly nonBlack university by means of critical discussion, active listening, organizing, and personal reflection.
This year, with support from donors like you, we are able to award $8,000 to Black students in need of financial assistance. Community, you can help the BSU Endowment reach its fundraising goal of $200,000! Every single gift counts and is meaningful.
This amount will allow the BSU to disperse scholarships to multiple students for years to come. This is a huge step towards making the university a more accessible environment for Black students and would highlight the Seattle U community's commitment to supporting and uplifting marginalized students by helping to fund their education.
