Do you have a public high school relative who will graduate in June 2023?
Now is the time to encourage them to complete the BCREA scholarship
application by March 1, 2023.
We have expanded our scholarship program to include several new awards:
The Janet Bischak Memorial Scholarship of $5000
to a candidate committed to a career in teaching and/or or a major in
biological or life sciences
The BCREA Memorial Scholarship of $3000

Most seniors are caught up in the admissions process, and they need
reminders to spend time completing the application. Seniors can work with
their guidance counselor to compile the information.
Just note: the application deadline is March 1st and is strictly enforced.
Application forms are available online at bergencrea.org under the
