The Bartlesville Community Foundation (BCF) is excited to kick-off 2023 with full grant and scholarship cycles. The Foundation’s grant cycle will open January 30 and close March 3 while the scholarship cycle is live now and will close Friday, March 10th.
This spring, organizations working in Bartlesville and Washington County could qualify for funding from one or more of the three grants accepting applications this cycle: Fund for Bartlesville, Rich and Kathleen Rutledge Fund for Arts, and the Service League Grant Fund. Organizations interested in funding should visit the BCF website to learn more an apply. Awarding decisions will be decided by the Foundation’s grant committee following the cycle with funding distributed by the end of June.
“Our grant and scholarship programs continue to affect more students and organizations every year. Last spring, this increased impact translated to more than $170,000 directly affecting those who need it most and is a true testament to how The Power of Together can be put to work” – Laura Jensen, BCF Executive Director.
Eighteen scholarships can be found on the BCF’s website. All of which are open for application for students in Bartlesville and Washington County as well as surrounding areas. Students who are awarded scholarships will be notified during their school’s year-end awards assemblies or directly by the BCF in May.
Scholarship funds are created by donors who wish to recognize a loved one, support a degree or area of study, or to simply support continuing education. For example, some awards have STEM or arts focused requirements while others are general. Most awards available are for high school seniors. However, there are a couple that have been designed to expand eligibility for students at any point in their college careers.
