Learn About Bursting With Promise, Inc.
Our History and Our Purpose
Bursting With Promise, Inc. (BWP) is a nonprofit organization committed to providing financial assistance annually to one or more qualifying and deserving students entering Bowie State University (BSU), Coppin State University (CSU), Morgan State University (MSU), and University of Maryland Eastern Shore (UMES) freshman class, and to offer other community assistance through worthwhile uplift projects that benefit the local Prince George’s County, MD, schools and communities.
The founding of BWP was born of an unfortunate tragedy that occurred in 2015, when a most-promising MSU student, Adedire Ososanya, was struck and killed by a drunk driver while Adedire was heading home to the family during the MSU winter break. My own daughter, an MSU freshman at that time, shared this tragic news with me. I was inspired and committed to doing even more in my own community assistance endeavors as I began to learn more about Adedire, his goals as an MSU student, and his tenacity to excel and positively impact his community. The idea for an annual scholarship fund was born in the spring of 2016.
Bursting With Promise's commitment and pledge is to continue to help deserving students further their scholastic endeavors by offering them financial assistance. We graciously thank all who would like to offer support – financial donations, laptops, or school supplies – to further our efforts at providing some small blessing to each and every student we can impact with your generosity.
