The Birmingham Bloomfield Chamber, through its recognized 501(c)(3) Foundation, plans to award several scholarships to seniors graduating from area high schools and pursuing postsecondary studies at a community college, four-year accredited university or trade school within the state of Michigan.
Eligible high school seniors must either be employed by a Birmingham Bloomfield Chamber member business, or be an immediate family member of an employee of a Chamber member business. Up to four scholarships valued at up to $2,500 will be awarded on an annual basis.
This is an annual scholarship program authorized by the Birmingham Bloomfield Chamber Foundation Board of Directors funded by donations and proceeds from Foundation activities and grants by the Birmingham Bloomfield Chamber. Awards will be sent directly to the school of the winner’s choice upon completed student enrollment in that institution.
Applicants must complete the attached application and write a 600-word essay for consideration of the scholarship. No interviews are planned. The Birmingham Bloomfield Chamber Foundation Scholarship Committee will review applications and essays as part of the selection process.
Scholarship winners must use the award during the 2019-20 academic year. Failure to use the scholarship in a timely fashion will result in forfeiture of the award. These scholarships are open to full-time and part-time students. Financial need will not be factors in the selection process.
