Bloomingdale Community Scholarship
The Bloomingdale Homeowners Association (BHA) created the Bloomingdale Community Scholarship Fund in 2006 to assist outstanding Bloomingdale High School Seniors who plan to continue their education in college or vocational school programs. The $2,000 scholarship named in honor of former Bloomingdale Principal B.J. Stelter serves to reward high school seniors and encourage them to pursue a college career.
To be eligible, applicants must be residents of the Bloomingdale community, and the applicant’s parent/guardian must be a current member of the Bloomingdale Homeowners Association. In addition, the applicant must have at least a weighted 3.2 grade point average at the time of scholarship disbursement, and must be accepted at a two- or four-year accredited college or university. The application selection criteria includes: Community Service, Extra-curricular activities, Essay, Academics, and Letter of Reference. Applicants will be judged solely on merit, not financial need.
The application is generally available in January of each year at the high school’s guidance office, the BHA office, and online at the BHA website at www.bloomingdalehoa.com. Information is posted in the Bloomingdale Gazette, our website, and on Facebook. The winning student will be announced at the May BHA board meeting.
