The Community Giving Foundation: Bloomsburg is pleased to announce a new scholarship fund available for students at Bloomsburg University. The fund was established by the Bloomsburg Greek Alumni Association and is now accepting applications for its 2021 award.
With more than 10,000 Greek alumni of Bloomsburg University living across the country, the association was formed to maintain a strong connection between alumni, support the recruitment and retention of new members of Bloomsburg Greek organizations, and advance professional development and career pathways for all members of the Bloomsburg Greek system. The group created the Bloomsburg Greek Alumni Scholarship Fund to leave a positive impact on student life, the Greek system, and the greater community in Bloomsburg.
“This fund was created to bolster the Greek community by offsetting the significant costs of a college education. Our Greek alumni have a strong passion for the culture of Greek life and want the community to realize its benefits, helping current students experience the same kind of life-long bonds we experienced,” explains David Decoteau, Greek alumni and local businessman. “Several Greek alumni of Bloomsburg University have enjoyed a good working relationship with the Community Giving Foundation and its support in administering similar programs. The Foundation is the perfect vehicle to help us efficiently maintain and grow our scholarship fund.”
Scholarship Application Process
