Cedar Fair announces BGSU scholarship
        Bowling Green State University students who are enrolled in the university's Cedar Fair Resort and Attraction Management (RAAM) program now have new scholarship opportunities from Cedar Fair, a world leader in operating regional amusement and water parks.
        BGSU and Cedar Fair entered into a partnership in 2019 to offer the first and only Bachelor of Science in Resort and Attraction Management degree of its kind in North America. As part of this degree-completion program, students complete two guaranteed co-ops at one of Cedar Fair’s North American amusement parks or a similar destination. Both co-ops are paid and provide students with valuable experience to launch their careers even before graduation.
        As a part of Cedar Fair's commitment to its partnership with BGSU, it has introduced a new scholarship program with $45,000 to be distributed this academic year. Scholarships are being administered by the Erie County Community Foundation (ECCF).
        To be eligible, students must be enrolled in the RAAM program and have worked at a Cedar Fair park during the past 12 months. Thirty scholarships – each worth $1,500 – are available and are expected to be announced in May. Winners will be chosen by a six-person selection committee composed primarily of ECCF representatives.
        Cedar Fair and BGSU co-developed the unique RAAM program. The university facilitates the curriculum and Cedar Fair provides hands-on co-op experiences, training and opportunities to gain industry experience and full-time employment.
        Approximately 120 students are currently enrolled in the RAAM program. The inaugural class of 30 students graduated last spring, with 16 joining Cedar Fair in full-time, year-round, part-time or seasonal roles. 
        Cedar Fair owns and operates 13 properties, consisting of 11 amusement parks, four separately gated outdoor water parks, and resort accommodations totaling more than 2,300 rooms and more than 600 luxury RV sites.
