For over 23 years the BWL has awarded scholarships to graduating Beavercreek High School seniors. The dollar amount changes yearly based on proceeds raised for our annual scholarship luncheon. The students complete an application at the high school and are interviewed by a panel of teachers, counselors, and community representatives. For the BWL scholarship we look for students who make good grades, are involved in school and/or community activities, exhibit need, and show capability of doing college work. The scholarships are announced and awarded at the local scholarship assembly at the high school with parents and friends invited to attend.
Proceeds from the BWL Scholarship Luncheon help area Beavercreek High School students and "Women in Transition" to further their education by awarding scholarships to assist with college tuition and expenses. Scholarship funds are not only raised through the sale of the luncheon tickets, but also through the sale of raffle tickets (to try to win a basket) and the purchase of auctioned items and party reservations.
