About

Bobcats graduate with the lowest average student loan debt of all University System of Maryland schools, but that statistic means nothing to students who can’t afford their semester bills. 

32 Frostburg freshmen and sophomores – all of them with strong GPAs! – have not yet registered for fall because of unpaid spring semester bills. These students owe an average of $1,200.

We can’t let talented Bobcats quit Frostburg over something so trivial. We’ve seen the power of our alumni community to help people, and we can make a difference here.

Make your gift today to help keep these talented students at Frostburg State University this fall!

Tonight is the night!

We have 14 hours left in our campaign to help retain our best students who need a little extra help to stay at Frostburg.


Your gift directly impacts a student with good grades who is struggling to pay for his or her education.


Please, share this campaign with your Facebook friends, Twitter followers, and all Bobcats you know via email. We need a lot of Bobcats to join together for the maximum impact.

FSU students need you! Two days left!

Over the past few weeks, 66 of you have come together to raise $4,410 for the Unfinished Business Scholarship. 


With just two days left on this campaign, we need your help to do more to make sure Frostburg isn’t losing students with good grades just because they fell a few dollars short. This is a major need affecting 32 students right now. They’re working hard and need a little help to cross the finish line. 


Please, share this campaign with everyone you know. Share it on Facebook, Twitter, via email, via text. We need more of our fellow Bobcats to make a gift today. Thank you!

Help us meet a $500 challenge that's been issued!

In less than one week, 35 alumni, students, faculty, and staff have joined together to raise $1,775 in support of the Unfinished Business Scholarship. Thank you to everyone who has given so far!


John Short – Frostburg’s VP for Advancement – is putting his own money on the line. He agreed to match the next $500 we raise dollar for dollar!


So, once we hit $2,275, John will make his gift. If you haven’t yet given, now is the time. Make your gift today!


If you have already given, please share this exciting news with your friends and family and encourage them to give.


If you would prefer to give your gift by check, you can still do that and have it count towards this campaign and John’s challenge. Call Liz Nelson ’01 at 301-687-3163 or email her at eanelson@frostburg.edu for more details.


Thank you!
