Scholarship Spotlight

    Did you know that BCSC awards several scholarships to students planning to attend a trade or technical school?  Many years this money goes unused because we don't receive applications from students planning to pursue a career in the trades.  If you are planning to study anything related to:
  • building construction;
  • police science or fire fighting;
  • auto mechanics/automotive related;
  • cosmetology; or a
  • specialized trade (i.e.:  plumber, electrician, etc.)

  • OR, if you're just planning to attend a technical school (MATC, etc.) instead of a college or university...

please send an application!  We have at least six scholarships specifically intended for students planning to enter a trade or technical field/or attending a technical college.

Scholarship Recipients

   With the ever-increasing cost of a post-high school education, paying tuition bills can be a challenge.  Fortunately, the Baraboo community values education.  Many generous individuals have funded scholarships to help local students realize their dreams.  In 1976, the Baraboo Community Scholarship Corporation (BCSC) was established to bring a number of these scholarships together under the management of one organization.  Today, a single form allows students to apply for more than 60 scholarships.

    In 2013, the BCSC awarded over $100,000 in scholarships to Baraboo High School graduates.  Money is available for trade and technical students as well as those planning to attend 2- and 4-year colleges.  There are many different types of scholarships available.  While some reward academic achievement, others recognize personal characteristics, specific fields of study, outstanding accomplishments, work history, special interests and more.  It is possible for most students to find at least one scholarship that fits their qualifications.

    The deadline for applying Thursday, February 28, 2014.  Click on the Application Forms link at left to find this year's questionnaire.  Details about all of the scholarships we oversee can be found by clicking on the BCSC Scholarship Book link.
