Since its inception in 2004, the Allen Cottriel Scholarship Fund has given youth in our communities the financial support they need to attend colleges, universities, and technical schools. Nine college-bound youth from BHC Neighborhoods were awarded the 2017 Allen Cottriel Scholarship Award.
BHC is happy to announce that this year, we awarded the highest number of scholarship awards! At the start of our scholarship fund, BHC struggled to find an eligible applicant due to the community’s low high school graduation rate. BHC believes that the change we’ve seen, from the start of our scholarship to now, demonstrates what our youth can achieve when housing is safe, healthy, and affordable for our families.
On August 1st, BHC hosted the 2017 Allen Cottriel Scholarship Award Ceremony to recognize and congratulate our scholarship winners. Our 2017 scholarship recipients are pursing degrees in various academic disciplines, ranging from social work to business administration. By being involved in their schools, churches, and volunteer work, our scholarship awardees have shown a commitment not only to their studies, but also to their communities.
Congratulations to the 2017 Allen Cottriel Scholarship Recipients!
