Beavercreek Women's League Scholarship Luncheon

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. 

    Please check back to this page for the link to purchase the tickets for the April 14, 2018 Scholarship Luncheon.

Beavercreek High School Scholarships
For over 21 years the BWL has awarded scholarships to graduating Beavercreek High School seniors. The amount changes yearly based on proceeds for our annual scholarship luncheon but varied from one for $500 to this year’s eight totaling $10,000 (2017). 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

Please check back in September to learn the names of the 2017 recipients after they are announced at the September 2017 BWL meeting.

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.
  • Our five 2016 winners each received a $1300 scholarship, bringing our total to $76,000 granted to our WiT winners since the program began. Applicants live in Beavercreek, Fairborn, Bellbrook, Xenia, and Yellow Springs and attend Wright State University, Kettering College, and Clark State. (Because no applicants were Sinclair students, we were unable to use the grant from Sinclair; we will hold that for use next year.)
