Current Scholarship Offerings


Bradford Alumni Association announces 15 Scholarships offered for 2020

Bradford seniors planning to attend a 4-year college/university or, for a select group of scholarships, a 2-year technical college, are encouraged to apply for the Kenosha Bradford High School Alumni Association (KBHSAA) Scholarships.  Applicants are to meet general eligibility requirements for the individual scholarships unless otherwise specified.  College GPA of 2.0 or greater on a 4.0 scale is required unless otherwise specified.

Our deadline for Scholarship Applications was May 8, 2020.  The Scholarships Committee will be reviewing applications in the next 2 weeks. 
Those seniors selected to receive a KBHSAA Scholarship will be notified before May 30, 2020 via phone call from Joyce Sorensen, Scholarships Chairperson, with a follow-up confirmation letter to include scholarship details and the criteria to be met.  We hope the 2020 scholarship recipients will attend next year's Annual Alumni Banquet on Saturday, June 26, 2021 as our invited guests, as this year's event has been cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

For all scholarships awarded, payment is made to the recipient after the 1st semester of college is completed and the specific documentation requirements (criteria and grades) are met.  Payment to the recipient will generally occur on or about January 1, 2021.
