Applying for BBCC Scholarships

 

The Big Bend Community College 2019-20 online scholarship application is currently OPEN and the deadline is February 25. 2019. Incomplete or late applications will not be considered.

The application process allows current and future students to apply for any and all BBCC scholarships with a single application through our AwardSpring online system. Students can access the application from their computer, tablet, or smartphone.

The application for BBCC scholarships is generally September through early March with awards being announced between late April – early May. Scholarships provide funding for the upcoming academic year – Fall, Winter and Spring quarters.

BBCC Scholarship Application Information

• You will need a valid email account, your unofficial high school or college transcripts, and email addresses for the individuals whom you intend to write your recommendation.

• An unofficial copy of your latest transcript will need to be uploaded to the application. You can obtain transcripts from your high school or college.

• We require two recommendations to be completed before the deadline. These can be from a teacher, professor, counselor, school administrator, family friend, or employer. AwardSpring will email your request to the individual – it is your responsibility to follow up with them and make sure that the recommendation is completed.  Letters from family members or dated prior to May 1, 2018, will not be accepted.

• Most of the questions are multiple choice or yes/no questions; however, there are four essay questions which give the reviewers a sense of who you are and your future goals. Be sure to give yourself enough time to complete these questions.

• Some scholarships have more specific criteria. So be sure to check your Dashboard to see if there are any additional items you need to complete.

• Students can apply for BBCC Foundation scholarships once per academic year. Eligibility requirements vary according to the criteria established for each scholarship.

• Notification of scholarship awards is typically sent late April, with some additional award notifications sent over the summer, fall, and winter.

• Notifications will be e-mailed to the address listed on your scholarship application. Be sure to update both the Foundation and BBCC of any address or email changes.

• BBCC Scholarship awards have typically disbursed the beginning of each quarter for fall, winter, and spring. If you need your disbursement in the summer quarter, please contact the Foundation.
