$10,000 Renewable Scholarship Award: Burlington-Edison Education Foundation Dollars for Scholars, Washington

In existence since 1992, the Burlington-Edison Education Foundation's primary focus has been to create and fund local scholarships for graduates of Washington's Burlington-Edison High School who are pursuing academic, technical or trade school degrees.

The organization applied specifically for the renewable scholarship award because of the unique demographics and support needs of their student base: "We want to expand our current renewable program to better support those who need this assistance the most.  B-E Education Foundation Dollars for Scholars serves a student population who are the first in their family to attend college; emancipated minors who are the sole financial provider for their education; and a large immigrant student population."

These first-generation, immigrant and self-supporting students often find themselves earning scholarships and financial aid to get into college-but not enough to continue all the way to their degree. With the Fradkin Legacy Award Renewable Grant, B-E Education Foundation Dollars for Scholars will help their graduates not only enter college but complete college with a degree.
