Second Annual Giving Day a Great Success

The Beloit College community is generous and showed its heart and soul during its second annual Giving Day on Wednesday, April 20, 2016. In just 24 hours, the college raised over $65,000 from more than 450 supporters.

Not only did the gifts far surpass the original goal of $25,000, the event also raised $25,000 more than last year. Beloit is touched by the fantastic response received from supporters and is grateful to be backed by such a strong foundation of alumni, parents, faculty, staff, and friends. These gifts help make ‪#‎BeloitPossible for the next generation of Turtles, Bucs, and Beloiters.

The unconditional support, enthusiastically offered by our alumni, parents, and friends is a tribute to the character of our community, and the value that we all collectively recognize in the mission we seek to advance. We at Beloit are privileged to have a community so willing to invest in the future of our great institution, and our students. For this, we are grateful,” said Mark Wold’95, Senior Director of Alumni & Parent Relations and Annual Support.

Thank you to all who supported Beloit College’s second annual Giving Day. As College President Scott Bierman often says, it’s “turtles all the way down.”

New grant funds 15 paid internships for Beloiters

September 30, 2013 at 7:38 am


Fifteen rising juniors and seniors will compete to participate in paid internships at Beloit organizations during the summer of 2014, thanks to an $80,870 grant from the Great Lakes Higher Education Guaranty Corporation. The program, titled Think BIG!, partners Beloit College faculty with local leaders to provide valuable beyond the classroom learning experiences connected to the students’ liberal arts education.

Short for Beloit Internship Grants, Think BIG! will be administered by the Beloit College Liberal Arts in Practice Center in partnership with local businesses and nonprofit organizations.

“The college is very focused on the healthy, mutually beneficial relationship we have with the community,” said Ruth Vater, director of government & foundation relations at Beloit College. “We recognize that this region’s talented scientists and business leaders offer a lot to our students in terms of great mentorship and that these leaders enjoy the energy and ideas Beloit College students bring to their offices in return.”

Students will be required to apply to this program through a competitive process, which includes submitting a resume, cover letter, personal statement, and application form. In the application, the student will also identify a faculty or academic staff mentor who will support the academic component of the internship.

Beloit employers who are interested in hosting an intern and shaping the course of a student’s academic and professional education may contact Jessica Fox-Wilson, director of career development at Beloit College, at 608-363-2647 or foxjs@beloit.edu.
