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.”

Multiple Beloiters win study-abroad scholarships

The Benjamin A. Gilman Scholarship program just announced awards for study abroad in spring 2014, and eight Beloit College students are among those who received the awards.

This is an accomplishment of which the college should be proud, says Director of International Education Betsy Brewer. “Beloit College students received the greatest number of awards at an institution of its size,” she says. “Indeed, we beat out many institutions with much larger student populations.”

The next application deadline for Gilman awards is March 4; to be eligible for the award, students must also be eligible for Pell Grants. Jon Urish in the Financial Aid department works with students to complete the financial portions of the application, while Brewer can provide advice on completing the two essays required for the application.
