Student Scholarships Available – Don’t miss out on the opportunity.
Scholarships are gifts. They don’t need to be repaid. Some scholarships cover the entire cost of your tuition, others are awards that will help reduce the cost and make the remainder more manageable. You have nothing to lose and an education to gain.
Take a look at some of the scholarships that we have to offer. You are able to apply to as many of the scholarships for which you believe that you are eligible. So, what are you waiting for?
The 2020 Spring BCC Foundation Scholarship application will be available online soon! All students are eligible: international, DACA and undocumented students, too! The scholarship process is competitive, so be sure to apply on time!
