About the Scholarships
From eligibility requirements to deadlines, here's the basic information you need to know to apply for a scholarship.

The Better Business Bureau Serving Wisconsin awards scholarships to Wisconsin high school students who have demonstrated character, leadership, and ethical values. The scholarships will be awarded for post-high school education at any Wisconsin-based accredited college beginning in the fall of 2018, including community colleges/technical colleges. As the scholarship recipients pursue their careers, BBB Serving Wisconsin hopes to develop future business leaders who will promote ethics in the Wisconsin marketplace.


Funding for the 2018 BBB Students of Integrity Scholarship Program is provided by the generous support of donors to Better Business Bureau Serving Wisconsin.

Awards Luncheon
Recognition of the scholarship recipients is coupled with the BBB Torch Awards for Ethics event luncheon on
