Scholarships at Bay
The scholarship program at Bay de Noc Community College is supported by contributions from organizations, businesses and individuals in the community via the Bay College Foundation
. Most awards are made by the Financial Aid Office and are based primarily on academic performance and other criteria identified by the donor(s). A limited number of restricted awards are made by an independent scholarship committee. Awards are based solely upon the qualifications of the applicant.
The scholarship application for the upcoming fall semester will be made available soon!!!!
If you are a graduating high school senior and wish to be considered for scholarships, you must complete the Application for Admission and be accepted for admission. The first priority deadline for award consideration is March 15th for fall semester and October 15th for winter semester. Periodic awards are made after those dates. Most awards for incoming freshmen require a high school grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 or above. In some instances, the minimum GPA or credit load may be waived to facilitate in the awarding of available funds.
A new multi-year scholarship for Bay College West students is available each year for incoming and non-traditional students. Click here for the Bay College West Charles J & Patricia O Nelson Scholarship Application
