Appalachian Outreach Scholarship

Organized by: William Bowling

William's Photo


My name is William Bowling and I am a first-generation college graduate from Appalachian (specifically Kentucky). My entire professional career has been devoted to working with other first-generation students and those from low-income families to give them the best possible chance for success for reaching college and graduating (both challenges that are especially difficult for Appalachian youth). The money raised from this drive will be used to fund a continuous scholarship that will fill in gaps in financial needs for students on a yearly basis. Some of the costs that may be covered could include a laptop for student use, housing costs, tuition, or meal plans. All funds will be managed by a third party and to ensure no bias on my part. Selection for the scholarship will be based on need and an essay in which the student describes their unique situation and how the opportunity to attend college will change their life. Please consider giving what you can. Any contribution will go a long way towards ensuring another Appalachian student can reach their academic and career goals. Thank you! -Will Bowling
