Sponsor a Student Scholarship!

BBB Torch Scholarships, BBB's semi-annual scholarship program, recognize students who personify high ethical standards as demonstrated through leadership, community service, overall personal integrity and academic history.

Torch Scholarships are given to college-bound high school juniors, seniors and college undergraduates who reside within BBB's 33-county service area. Six (6) scholarship prizes in the amounts of two (2) $5,000, two (2) $3,000, and two (2) $1,000 will be awarded. To be eligible, students must submit an up-to-1,000 word essay, along with an application, transcript and letter of recommendation from a BBB Accredited Business. Torch Scholarship winners will be honored at BBB's yearly Torch Awards Ceremony.
