Current Scholarship Offerings


Bradford Alumni Association announces 15 Scholarships offered for 2021

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. 

Please download and complete the KBHSAA Scholarship Application and submit it to Mrs. Robin Mars, Bradford Guidance Counselor (Room #218), along with a copy of your high school transcript, no later than Tuesday, April 13, 2021.  The application must be typed; handwritten applications will not be considered.

Those seniors selected to receive a KBHSAA Scholarship will be notified before May 30, 2020, hopefully at the Senior Recognition event (or via phone call from Joyce Sorensen, Scholarships Chairperson) with a follow-up confirmation letter to include scholarship details and the criteria to be met.  Scholarship recipients for 2020 and 2021 will be invited to attend the annual Alumni Banquet on Saturday, June 26, 2021 as honored guests of KBHSAA, along with the Distinguished Alumni Award recipients for both years (an extradordinary situation brought about by 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.  All scholarships are non-renewable (i.e., a one-time award), and payment to the recipient will generally occur on or about January 1, 2022.
