Become a Bearcat Builder!

As a Bearcat Builder, you will be providing a scholarship to a Northwest Missouri State University student who demonstrates high campus engagement in a discipline of your choosing. AND, an extra bonus - you will do so in honor of one of the Bearcats at your organization!

How it works:

  1. Donate $1,000 to Northwest’s Bearcat Builder scholarship fund. Better yet, you can endow your scholarship and have it awarded forever!
  2. YOU decide what Bearcat in your organization you want to honor by naming the scholarship after them. Maybe it’s a longstanding employee, an intern who did phenomenal work or one of your customers. It truly is your choice.
  3. You send Northwest the name of the individual to be honored and their contact information.
  4. The University selects a student to receive the “Company – Bearcat Alum Scholarship” (ex. Green Company – Bobby Bearcat Scholarship) for the upcoming academic year.
  5. You as well as the honored Bearcat alum and the selected student will all be invited to participate in a celebratory event where both the student and your Bearcat alum will be honored and your organization recognized for its generous support.
