Beavercreek High School Scholarships
For over 22 years the BWL has awarded scholarships to graduating Beavercreek High School seniors. The amount changes yearly based on proceeds for our annual scholarship luncheon. The students fill out an application at the high school and go through an interview with 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.
Women in Transition Scholarships
In 2000 we began a scholarship program to benefit Greene County women who are returning to school, changing careers, or dealing with often unexpected life challenges. Currently, The Beavercreek Women's League gives at least one Women-in-Transition scholarship each year, valued at not less than $1000.00. It is geared for a woman returning to school, changing careers, with life challenges, good grades. Please call to request an application or click below to get your application from this website.
