Blue River Community Foundation scholarship apps available

The application for 2020 Blue River Community Foundation (BRCF) scholarship opportunities is available on the BRCF website: www.blueriverfoundation.com.

 

The deadline to submit an application is January 15, 2020.

 

High school graduating seniors planning to pursue vocational or undergraduate studies, current college students, graduate students, and adults pursuing or finishing a college degree are eligible to apply. One unique feature to BRCF’s application process is that applicants complete one application to qualify for all scholarship opportunities for which they are eligible. Specific criteria, requirements, and instructions for applying, as well as a list of scholarships available through the application process, are listed in the BRCF Scholarship Resource Guide for Students located on the Foundation’s website under the Scholarshipstab.

 

Since 1994, BRCF has invested over $5.4 million in students pursuing post-secondary education. This amount represents $2 million which has been awarded to Shelby County’s 38 Lilly Endowment

Community Scholarship recipients and is made possible by Lilly Endowment Inc., as well as, $3.4 million awarded to students from BRCF Scholarship Funds. In fact, last spring alone 126 students claimed 163 scholarships totaling $297,650 in awards from 76 scholarship funds administered by BRCF. These scholarship funds are made possible through the generosity of our donors who recognize the tremendous need for assistance in meeting the costs of higher education.
