Scholarships

The BSC Alumni Association offers a scholarship every year to encourage and help support BSC students. This scholarship is designed to help all students of BSC. The BSC Alumni Association supports the mission of the institution by providing students who demonstrate scholastic achievement and evidence of need of financial assistance, an affordable education in a caring environment.

The amount and number of scholarships is determined by the interest earned on the principal of the fund. Awards can be renewed if the student still meets the criteria and is making appropriate progress. Recipients must reapply each year.

The scholarship is awarded for the academic year and begins the fall semester. Application must be received in April before the academic year when the award will be used.

Recipients shall be selected on a competitive basis, with consideration given to academic record, student essay, and faculty recommendation. Students will be selected by a committee made up of the members of the BSC Alumni Association. Scholarship recipients will be announced at the annual spring meeting.

Alumni Scholars will be required to maintain an overall (to include all grades) grade point average of 2.50. Alumni Scholars must be enrolled as full-time students carrying a minimum of 16 semester hours per semester. The progress of the alumni scholar will be reviewed at the end of each semester by the Alumni Association's Scholarship Committee. These scholarships may be renewed annually for up to four years.
