From the Berrien Community Foundation:
Scholarship applications are available at the Berrien Community Foundation and this year brings four new scholarships to the table to help students.
The Rodney Weir Scholarship for Coloma Marching Band, The SW MI Human Trafficking Task Force Scholarship, Trefz Family Scholarship, and the Frederick S. Upton Foundation Opportunity Scholarship are the new scholarship programs that have been added to the stable of scholarships administered by the Berrien Community Foundation.
“Through the generosity of donors in our community, the BCF scholarship program just keeps growing.” Said Berrien Community Foundation President Lisa Cripps-Downey. “We are thrilled to add to the educational opportunities available to everyone in our community, from recent high school graduates, to adults who are returning to school. These four new scholarships will make a tremendous addition.”
The Berrien Community Foundation will award almost $150,000 in student scholarships this year. Scholarships come in all shapes and sizes supporting particular schools, careers, or areas of interest.
