Giving back

Binghamton University Women (BUW) proudly supports two scholarships for women students at Binghamton University:

  • The Wanda Bartle - University Women Scholarship, established in 2001 for an incoming female first-year student with academic merit and financial need as determined by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). This scholarship may be retained for four years, contingent upon the student maintaining academic merit. 
  • The University Women Female Graduate Scholarship, established in 2003 for a full-time second-year female graduate student with a GPA of 3.7 or above. 

Each of these scholarships is supported by an endowment at the Binghamton University Foundation that we have built through BUW donations as well as with direct gifts. The Foundation reports to us annually – at the end of each fiscal year – about the financial health of our endowments and the recipients. Support our students through the links provided above.

Another way Binghamton University Women supports students

We also support the Wanda Bartle/Barnes & Noble Book Awards, established in 1996 to honor Wanda M. Bartle, the wife of the University's first president. Binghamton University Women, in partnership with Barnes & Noble College Booksellers, provides these awards of a semester's worth of textbooks ($300 value) to two qualified applicants annually.

In late fall, recipients are selected by a committee of the Binghamton University Women from qualified applicants for one spring and one fall award. Successful applicants must be female undergraduate students with a minimum 3.0 Binghamton University GPA (a transfer student's GPA must include 12+ Binghamton University credits) and demonstrated financial need. Applicants must also show involvement in community service and/or intent to enter a profession oriented toward helping others.

The 2022 recipients of the Wanda Bartle/ Barnes & Noble Book Awards are Alexis Valerias (spring) and Arielle Westcott (fall).
