General Information About BC Foundation Scholarships

This 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. The BC Foundation Scholarship provides funds to incoming and current BC students for the upcoming year (with the exception of summer quarters). Scholarships generally range from $1,000 – $3,000 each.

With one application, students are automatically considered for the majority of our available scholarships. Students may apply each year that they plan to enroll at BC, as long as they meet the eligibility criteria. The funds can be applied to tuition, fees, and in some cases, books purchased from the BC Bookstore.

The BC Foundation Scholarship Application is hosted on AwardSpring. Please create an account to access the application.
