The Scholarship Committee of the Bavaria Community and Spouses’ Club (BCSC) welcomes your interest in applying for one of our scholarships to assist in the continuation of your education. These scholarships are made possible through BCSC-sponsored activities, such as our Thrift Shops and the annual Crown Jewel Bazaar. The Scholarship Committee reviews submissions anonymously and determines applicant merit based on packet submission.

Financial need is not a factor in award consideration. The Scholarship Committee will determine the award recipients through an analysis of scores. The number of scholarships awarded, and the monetary value of each scholarship is based on available funds. Submission of an application does not guarantee receipt of a scholarship.
