BHS students eligible for BCEF scholarships

Will award more than $31K to BHS seniors

(BATESVILLE, Ind.) – The Batesville Community Education Foundation (BCEF) is now

accepting applications for its four scholarships for graduating seniors. 

In total, $31,500 will be awarded by BCEF to Batesville Schools. 

One $1,000 scholarship will be awarded in 2024 from the Ron Raver Memorial Scholarship

Fund. Applicants must be BHS graduating students in the top 15% of their class and have

participated in basketball, cross country, or track.

One graduate will be awarded the $2500 Bobbie Brandes Memorial Scholarship. BHS

graduates in the top 15% of the class qualify for the Brandes Scholarship. Special

consideration will be given to those applicants who meet any of the following criteria: are

first-generation college-bound; have demonstrated leadership in school organizations or

sports teams; are pursuing a career in education, or have demonstrated civic and

community engagement.

The Mary C. Horstman Scholarship will again be awarded by BCEF. As in previous years, the Horstman scholarship is available to any BHS graduate pursuing any type of additional education, including trade school. Applicants who have a connection to agriculture or are pursuing a trade will receive special consideration but are not guaranteed selection. Three $1,000 scholarships will be awarded.

“The last of our four scholarships, our largest, is the James E. Fritsch Memorial Scholarship,

and it will remain at five $5,000 recipients this year,” BCEF executive director Wilson noted. “We are committed to helping students reduce college costs and will continue to award substantial scholarships from that fund as long as our investments allow us that opportunity.”

The Fritsch scholarship requires applicants to be in the top 15% of the BHS Class of 2024.
