Thanks to very generous donors, a limited number of scholarships are available for families in need of financial assistance. Scholarships are awarded on a case-by-case basis. Applications are reviewed in the order in which they are received. Criteria include but are not limited to household income, number of family members and special individual/family circumstances.

BRC offers two scholarship options. Both applications are now PDF fillable.  Please download the form and use the “fill and sign” feature in Adobe Acrobat Reader to complete the form.
