Scholarships 2014

Once a year the BCC Foundation embarks on a scholarship campaign for transfer, returning and incoming students. (Please note: Other (external) scholarship information can also be found at this link: Scholarships-External.) The campaign for returning and transfer students begins February 3rd, with applications due March 6th and award notices sent to students the first week of May. NEW students have until April 14th to complete their scholarship application. Students must maintain a 2.75 GPA to be eligible for scholarship. This is the only time of year that the BCC Foundation awards scholarships.

 Below is a list of scholarships available to students each year. The amount of each award is contingent on the performance of the stock market and the economic climate. Scholarships range from $250 to full tuition and fees. Only one application is necessary to qualify for the BCC scholarships listed below.

  • If you will be a new student in the fall or are currently a BCC student that has earned less than 12 credits, online scholarship applications are available March 10th.  Click here for application information.
  • High School and Home School Student Scholarships: If you are of high school age, not eligible for financial aid and intend on enrolling in a course at Berkshire Community College, you are eligible to apply for scholarships.
