How We Choose Our Scholarship Recipients

Since 1997, The Bangor Area Alumni Association has awarded 80 scholarships totaling $68,200.  These scholarships are chosen by an alumni committee from approximately 20-25 applicants each year. 

We consider their future plans, colleges to which they have been accepted, parents’ income, number of siblings attending college in the same household, and paying jobs the applicant may have held, in order to access their need.

The applicants are required to provide their academic records, a list of their school activities, community service, and sports in which they have participated.  They also provide a list of any awards or honors they have received and offices they have held.  A required essay is also submitted by the applicant exploring a topic selected by the scholarship committee.  A different topic is chosen each year.

After the committee makes its selection, the Alumni Association holds a reception for the recipients and their families, which is held on the second Tuesday of June. each year.

It is because of the generous donations from loyal BAHS alumni, that we are able to give 4 or 5 scholarships to our graduating seniors each year.

We also accept donations from classes in honor of a special reunion.  The class of 1960 has given $9,000 in scholarships since their 50th reunion in 2010.
