Better Business Bureau Scholarship
|Better Business Bureau is offering Student of Integrity Scholarships for Minnesota and North Dakota high school students entering their senior year. These scholarships are designed to recognize and promote ethics and integrity among young people, and will be awarded to students who demonstrate high character in their personal choices and actions. There are three scholarships available - one for $2,500, one for $1,500 and one for $1,000.
Students are asked to write an essay or create a video that gives a personal example of how they were challenged or struggled through a difficult situation and how they overcame the situation by the application of integrity and personal ethics. This must be accompanied by the scholarship entry form, one letter of recommendation, a copy of high school transcripts, a list of extracurricular activities and any post-secondary education plans.
All entries must be received by Tuesday, September 23, 2014 at 4:00pm.
The entry packet and further details are available at thefirstbbb.org/scholarship.
The scholarships will be presented in conjunction with the BBB Torch Awards for Ethics, which are given to companies that demonstrate ethics in their business practices. The BBB Torch Awards ceremony will take place on October 29 from 11:00am - 1:30pm at McNamara Alumni Center on the University of Minnesota campus.
