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. Eligibility for individual programs is determined at the sole discretion of the sponsor, and eligible applications are reviewed by Scholarship America’s evaluation team.
Children of employees of BCU are ineligible to apply.
Up to twenty-eight (28) awards will be granted in 2021:
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.
Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of academic record, demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities, work experience, a statement of goals and aspirations, unusual personal or family circumstances and essay* response.
Financial need is not considered.
Assuming there are qualified applicants, the diversity of the recipient pool will proportionally reflect the diversity of the applicant pool.
Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of BCU play a part in the selection. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.
What is one area of personal finance you hope to learn more about during your college years? How will you acquire the skills to be confident about your financial choices in the future?
All applicants will be notified in July.
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.
Your application is not complete unless all required documents are submitted electronically through the Scholarship America Student Hub.
