Applications now are being accepted for the BJC Scholars Fund, a scholarship opportunity for college-bound high school seniors who plan to pursue a two- or four-year degree. BJC created the scholarship in response to regional community needs identified by the Ferguson Commission.
Each scholarship will be a need-based award of $10,000 per academic year at a public Missouri or Illinois state college or university in the state where the student resides, or at a public university in another state offering in-state tuition reciprocity.
The annually renewable scholarship will be applicable toward tuition, fees, room and board, transportation and incidental costs. The scholarship foundation will support students and parents in taking full advantage of other state, federal and institutional funds to which students are entitled, to ensure that the BJC scholarship award enables the complete funding required for full-year attendance.
The BJC Scholars Fund submission deadline is April 16. Recipients will be announced in July for the 2018-2019 academic year. Interested students can access more information online at sfstl.org/financial-aid/student-loans-grants.
