Bloomsburg University's professional experience grants, which are funded by BU alumni donors and the Student Success fee, are awarded to assist students with professional learning experiences and help them explore their chosen career paths and work alongside colleagues and faculty members. To date, 28 students have received monetary awards to participate in faculty-mentored research, academic internships, study abroad, professional conference presentations, service projects and other career-related experiences. The average grant per student was $1,700. For the 2016 Winter Session, 14 awards totaling $19,700 were distributed with students receiving an average of $1,400. Seven awards totaling $8,000 were distributed for Spring 2017 experiences. The average spring award was $1,000.
