BCU has established a scholarship program to assist members who are high school seniors and plan to continue their education in college. Scholarships are offered each year for full-time study at an accredited institution of the student´s choice.
The program is administered by Scholarship America, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarship and tuition reimbursement programs for corporations, foundations, associations and individuals. Awards are granted without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, gender, disability or national origin.
Children of employees of BCU are ineligible to apply.
Up to thirty (30) awards will be granted in 2020:
Recipients may receive only one award of any type.
Recipients may receive awards one time only. Past recipients may not apply.
Awards are for undergraduate study only.
Applicants will be notified in July. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients. Non recipients will be notified by email and recipients will receive notification by email and U.S. postal mail.
Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of BCU. The payment is made in one installment in early August. A check is made payable to the student´s school and mailed to each recipient´s home address.
Financial need is not considered.
Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of BCU play a part in the selection. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.
Scholarship recipients must meet the requirement of being a BCU member in good standing, and agree to provide standard personal information associated with the announcement of the award. All other information provided is voluntary. Applicants are also required to notify Scholarship America of any changes in address, school enrollment, or other relevant information, and to send a complete official transcript when requested.
