Apply for Scholarships
Thanks to the generosity of our many donors, the foundation is able to offer over $75,000 each year in scholarships to support students in their educational endeavors. Scholarships are awarded every quarter, with applications made available approximately three months prior to the start of the quarter. Some scholarships are designated for students enrolled in specific programs, whiles others are available to all students. Scholarships are typically able to be used for tuition, books, tools and other supplies. Scholarship applications are only accepted online.
Application Deadlines - at NOON on the date indicated below
Summer 2013: April 12. Recipients will be announced before summer quarter begins
Fall 2013: Application available in June.
Scholarship workshops are held every quarter for students to learn how to fill out the online application, ask questions and learn how to make your application stand out. Attend a scholarship workshop to learn how to improve your winter quarter application. The next scholarship workshops will be held in summer quarter.
Students are asked to submit a recommendation form with their scholarship application. The form is included in the quarterly announcement or can be downloaded separately.
A limited number of emergency scholarships are awarded to students who are facing unexpected, extenuating circumstances. To be eligible, students must have been enrolled at Bates for a minimum of two quarters and cannot have received an emergency scholarship in the last year. Funding is for up to $100 and can be used for emergencies such as utility bills, bus passes, medical bills, or other unanticipated emergencies. Please contact the foundation to receive an application.
