The Money Matters Scholarship program, sponsored by Charles Schwab Foundation, is designed to highlight and promote BGCA’s Money Matters program among Club teens ages 16 to 18. Scholarships will be awarded to Club teens who demonstrate their understanding of the concepts of financial responsibility. All applicants must have participated in Money Matters. There is no limit to the number of scholarship applications that your Club can submit. Previous scholarship winners are not eligible. All applications will be reviewed by BGCA and Charles Schwab Foundation to determine the final scholarship recipients.
A total of 11 scholarships will be awarded for the 2015 year. One $5,000 scholarship will be awarded to a teen with an exceptional application: this teen will be named the National Money Matters Ambassador. Ten scholarships of $1,000 each will also be awarded.
You are encouraged to include members who have demonstrated continued involvement with and support of Boys & Girls Clubs. Additionally, recipients are expected to have participated in Money Matters programming through your organization.
Recipients must meet all of these requirements to be eligible for the scholarship award:
- Possess a valid identification card in his or her name.
- Be a high school junior or senior during the 2014-2015 school year.
- Attend or be a graduate of a public, private, charter or parochial school located in one of the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Native American lands, a U.S. territory or a Department of Defense school (not to exclude members who reside on a military installation that may not attend a DOD school).
- Plan to attend an eligible post-secondary institution, trade or technical school.
Completed application packets must be submitted by February 20, 2015.
