Bradford Alumni Association announces 15 Scholarships offered for 2023

Bradford seniors planning to attend a 4-year college/university or a 2-year degree program at an accredited technical school/community 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, along with a copy of your high school transcript, to Ms. Amber Wabalickas, Bradford Guidance Counselor (Room #246), no later than Wednesday, April 5, 2023.  The application must be typed; handwritten applications will not be considered.

Those seniors selected to receive a KBHSAA Scholarship will be notified before May 10, 2024, with a follow-up confirmation letter from Joyce Sorensen, KBHSAA Scholarships Chairperson, which will include scholarship details and the criteria to be met.  Scholarship packets will be formally presented at Bradford's Senior Recognition event at the end of May. 

Scholarship recipients for 2023 will be invited to attend the annual DAA Banquet & Silent Auction on Saturday, June 17, 2023 as honored guests of KBHSAA, along with this year's Distinguished Alumni Award recipients. 

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, 2025.
