The BVA Board awarded three $1,000 scholarships to students in Florida and North Carolina.  BVA members presented the certificates and checks to the winners in July. You can read the essays each student wrote on our scholarship page at

The scholarship winners were selected by a group of BVA members who were appointed at the 2019 annual meeting. They reviewed all the applicant's essays and personal stories to make the selection. We look forward to improving the process next year and appreciate the work and time everyone put into making this first year a success.
