Batavia Business and Professional Women's Club seeks Scholarship and Service Award applicants

Press release:

The Batavia Business and Professional Women’s Club is announcing its annual scholarship and Community Service Awards and calling for applications. 

Scholarships are open to all Genesee County high school seniors (male or female).

The students need to have maintained an 85-percent average, need to complete the one-page application and attach a letter of recommendation from a school staff member. The students will also need to submit a personal essay discussing their achievements and future goals as well as an essay from a parent. The application can be found and printed at the Batavia Business and Professional Women’s website: bataviabpw.wordpress.com under the Giving tab.

All schools in Genesee County were emailed packages on this program in February. These included the eligibility requirements, guidelines and applications. Parents and students are advised to seek out their school’s guidance counselor/department to receive the needed information and application.

The Batavia Business and Professional Women’s Club has established a scholarship for a returning student from Genesee Community College as well. The recipient is chosen by a college representative and the award is applied to their account in the fall.

Recognition is also given to two outstanding students from Genesee Valley Educational Partnership in a form of cash awards for their outstanding scholarship performance.

The Batavia Business and Professional Women’s Club has given scholarships since 1961. The number and amount of scholarships given is dependent on the club’s annual fundraiser.

The Batavia Business and Professional Women’s Club will also offer monetary awards for service groups in June. Deadline for both the scholarship applications and the service awards letters are to be postmarked by Friday, April 14.

Please share with your local service groups that they need to send a short letter requesting to be considered for our service award on service group letterhead to:

Batavia Business and Professional Womens’ Club Service Award

Batavia, NY 14020
