scholarship recipient must complete the BGS scholarship application. However, chapters use various methods
for selecting their recipients.
Qualifying chapters must confirm their participation and availability of matching funds in January with a deadline for returning the winning applications to the Central Office in late Spring. Winners are announced in April/May.
Through the BGS Scholarship Program, the Society has helped more than 1,700 outstanding students of business reach their educational goals. As the program continues to expand, more students will benefit in the future. To date, more than $1.8 million has been awarded to outstanding student members through the program.
