High School - Home School Student Program Scholarships @ BCC

Deadline: August 16, 2013 at 04:00 PM EDT - CLOSED


Alexander M. Bashara Scholarship
Samantha Inman Scholarship

The BCC Foundation has two scholarships available for high school or home schooled students to assist with tuition, fees and/or books at Berkshire Community College. BCC offers all high school age students the opportunity to take one college level course for free each semester (must meet prerequisites). These scholarships can assist students with the purchase of books for the free course, or tuition, fees, and books for a second course. Scholarship awards will be put on the student's account at Berkshire Community College. Applications will be reviewed monthly as they are received and as funds are available.


To be considered for either of these scholarships, applicants must meet all of the following criteria:
• Be of high school age
• Not eligible for financial aid
• Intend on enrolling in a course at Berkshire Community College



You may first preview the application to get an idea of what you will need. You may save your application and return at any time. There is no time limit.

You must obtain a recommendation from someone who knows you well and is not related to you. You will need this contact's e-mail address as this process is done electronically.

If you are currently in high school, you must also ask your guidance counselor to submit your transcript. This can be done electronically or in the mail. Follow the directions in the application.

In order to submit your application for consideration, you must have completed all areas of the application, including the contact information for the recommendation. You are responsible for ensuring your recommendation and transcript are submitted.

You are also required to write an essay. The committee is interested in learning more about you (i.e. your past, future plans/aspirations). You may type your essay in the box provided in the application or copy and paste from a word document. Note: the maximum word allotment is 500 words.
