BWE Foundation College Scholarship Fund
We believe universities and private businesses can work together to make the world a better place and we must start by helping our youth succeed. After all, you are our future.
One main goal is to create diversity and inclusion in the industry. The College Scholarship Fund is our first project under the newly formed Bellwether Enterprise Foundation.
We are awarding up to ten underrepresented students across five Universities $10,000 scholarships towards annual tuition with the potential of a paid summer internship. Students will gain first-hand experience at one of our nearby offices and participate in sessions with senior leaders of the company. It’s more than a scholarship, it’s a future career!
We reviewed data from hundreds of universities and carefully selected the below five schools that best fit our requirements.
