SCHOLARSHIPS

The BAPA Scholarship aims to assist Bosnian-American students in navigating the educational system and aid them in furthering their professional goals.  BAPA recognizes that by helping students further their education, we are investing in the growth of future leaders of the Bosnian-American community.
 

In 2022, BAPA will enter its seventh year of awarding scholarships to high achieving Bosnian-American students who do important work in their respective communities. In addition to financial support, the BAPA scholarship is meant to provide Bosnian-American students with an opportunity to develop important relationships with like-minded individuals. Scholarship recipients will be working with the BAPA board, mentors, and one another on projects of their choice which will be presented at BAPA’s Annual Forum.

 

This year, we are excited to announce that we are able to offer three $5,000 BAPA Scholarships plus one $5,000 scholarship sponsored by the Bosana Foundation. We appreciate their support and the value they see helping us support our mission and assist Bosnian-American students in reaching their educational goals.
