The Bellevue College Foundation Scholarship program is funded by generous donors that include community members, corporations, alumni, and BC faculty, staff, and students. Scholarships are awarded annually to current and prospective BC students. Scholarship awards are based on academic merit, financial need, personal history, achievement, or for specific areas of study. With one application, students are automatically considered for the majority of our available scholarships.

All BC Foundation scholarships are to be used at BC only and can be applied to tuition, fees, and in some cases, books. The application for scholarships is available annually from January through March. Scholarships provide funding for the upcoming academic year – Fall, Winter, and Spring quarters. Students can apply for multiple years as long as they meet the eligibility criteria.

For the 2021-22 academic year, the Bellevue College Foundation awarded 192 scholarships totaling over $400,000. In addition to scholarships awarded directly by the Foundation’s Scholarship Committee, the BC Foundation funds other scholarships which are awarded in conjunction with various BC departments.
