Further education can be an apprenticeship, work/study program, internship, alternative study program, certificate program, two-year college degree program, or four-year college degree program.
Students are eligible to apply for the scholarship if they are seniors at CCRTHS or NRHS and have an overall GPA of 3.0 or above.
The scholarship award(s) for 2024 is $1,000. The recipient(s) will directly receive a check from the BPC to use towards their continuing education program. Awards are generally awarded in mid-June.
