BBA Scholarship

BATH TWP. – March 7, 2021 – For the eighth annual year, the Bath Business Association will offer a scholarship to a graduating high school senior living in Bath and planning to pursue a business-related major at an accredited college, university or technical school.

            “The mission statement of the BBA is to promote and encourage business in Bath,” said Don Corbett, chair of the BBA’s Scholarship Committee. “One of the best ways we can do this with the next generation of entrepreneurs is to provide a scholarship to help them achieve their business education.”

            The scholarship this year will be a one-time, $1,000 award, said Corbett. During the past seven years, the BBA has awarded $10,000 in scholarship funds to selected students, with the scholarship amounts based on funds the BBA is able to raise specifically for that purpose.

            “The Bath community’s participation in the annual Bath Community Garage Sale helps to generate the proceeds that fund the annual scholarship amount,” said Corbett. “Because there was no garage sale last year due to the pandemic, our funding stream for the scholarship was diminished, so the award this year will be $1,000.  While we wish it could be more, we know any amount will help candidates like those we’ve helped in the past.”

            In addition to living in Bath and planning to study in a business-related field, applicants should have at least a 2.5 GPA.  Extracurricular activities, community involvement, work experience, and financial need will also factor into the selection process.

              The scholarship application is available from counselors in the Guidance Offices at area schools, including Archbishop Hoban, Cuyahoga Valley Career Center, Cuyahoga Valley Christian Academy, Our Lady of the Elms, Revere, St. Vincent-St. Mary, and Walsh Jesuit. The application will also be available on-line here after March 15 or at The Bake Shop in Ghent, 800 Wye Road, during regular business hours.

            The application deadline is April 23, and the scholarship recipient will be notified no later than mid-May.  For more information, call 330-807-0725.
