Preference will be given to applicants who are members of the SBE; however, any individuals otherwise eligible, including graduating high school seniors, are encouraged to apply. Scholarships within the program include:

    John H. Battison SBE Founder’s Scholarship (open to anyone)

A minimum of three $1,500 scholarships will be awarded in 2020.
