Blue Ridge Community College Educational Foundation Scholarships

Scholarships are available for the 2015-16 academic year.

Deadline to apply is April 2, 2015.

Scholarships are made possible by the generous donations of individuals, businesses, and organizations who have chosen to provide their support for students through Blue Ridge Community College Educational Foundation.

They are awarded based on criteria such as financial need and academic achievement, and are available to persons who are enrolled or intend to enroll in specific programs.


How to Apply

  • Obtain recommendations — read carefully to determine which category applies to you.

    • If you are currently attending Blue Ridge Community College, you must request letters of recommendation from at least two BRCC instructors/staff members. They should email the recommendation to Kathy Helms in the Financial Aid Office at kathyh@blueridge.edu.
       
    • For 2014 high school graduates or 2015 seniors, please provide two letters of recommendation from high school teachers or staff who can comment on your character, abilities, extracurricular activities, and financial need.
       
    • If neither of the above applies to you, please provide two letters of recommendation from individuals who can comment on your character, abilities, extracurricular activities, and financial need. (Do not use members of your family.)
  • Provide parental income information if you are age 23 or under, not married, and have no dependent children.
