Balfour Beatty Communities Foundation extends scholarship application deadline

By Balfour Beatty Communities

The Balfour Beatty Communities Foundation, a non-profit organization committed to honoring military personnel - active, disabled and fallen - and their families, has extended the application deadline for its educational scholarship program to April 30.

Undergraduate students living in on-base housing at Joint Base Charleston - Weapons Station are encouraged to apply for the scholarships valued up to $2,500. The application, details and requirements can be found at www.bbcommunitiesfoundation.org.

Balfour Beatty Communities is responsible for managing the privatized family housing at Joint Base Charleston - Weapons Station.

One of the Foundation's three primary goals is to promote the pursuit of education and a commitment to community leadership through educational scholarships to the children of its active duty service members that live in Balfour Beatty Communities family housing. With this extension, the Foundation hopes to ensure widespread awareness of the opportunity and give more high school or undergraduate students the chance of being awarded a scholarship.

The scholarship program is one of many ways the Foundation strives to honor its commitment to active duty service members and their families. The scholarships are awarded to those students who are in need of financial assistance, recognizing not only their educational and leadership efforts, but also the contribution of their parents and the sacrifices the children have made in their parents' absences.

The application, details and requirements for theses scholarships can be found at www.bbcommunitiesfoundation.org.
