The 2016-2017 Better Business Bureau of Delaware Education Foundation Scholarships were announced today with a new award added to the list for this year.
The Education Foundation will again offer a $2500 Student Ethics Scholarship each to 2 Delaware High School Seniors who personify high ethics as demonstrated through leadership, community service, overall personal integrity and academic history. These students will submit transcripts, letters of recommendation along with an essay that answers the question: "What should BBB of Delaware be doing to compete in today's online world to advance our mission?" The Student Ethics Scholarship program is sponsored by Hopkins & Sons Moving and Storage and Sallie Mae.
The third, and brand new, non-traditional scholarship is a video entry. This will be awarded to the student that best conveys the BBB mission and one of our core values - TRUST - in a 30-60 second video spot. This scholarship is also open to Delaware High School seniors and will give $2500 as the prize.
"We are thrilled to increase the number of scholarships we are able to offer Delaware High School seniors. We are committed to helping the next generation of consumers understand the value and mission of BBB," said BBB President Christine Sauers.
