BBA Scholarship

Applications are open through April 22 for the annual BBA 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. Applicants should have at least a 2.5 GPA, and extracurricular activities, community involvement, work experience, and financial need will factor into the selection process.  The scholarship, which is funded by proceeds from the annual Bath Community Garage sale, is a one-time award and will be for $1,000 this year.

              

The annual scholarship, which has been given out for the past eight years, has been renamed the Bath Business Association Don Corbett Memorial Scholarship in honor of Don.  Don, who passed away late last year, was a valuable and active member of the BBA. He was passionate about heading up the Scholarship Committee every year for the BBA.  His oversight, dedication and commitment to this committee and the pleasure he took in awarding this scholarship to a graduation senior every year was heartwarming and so very appreciated. In recognition of this, the annual BBA scholarship has been renamed in his memory and his honor.  

Scholarship applications will be available in the guidance offices of local high schools, at The Bake Shop in Ghent and here after Feb. 15.

 The application deadline is April 22, and the scholarship recipient will be notified no later than mid-May.
