In an era when things are touch and go financially, Bossier Parish Community College has stepped up to help out with the costs of higher education. They are offering a $450 scholarship to full time students who register for the Fall 2020 semester.

There are a few requirements though. The scholarship only applies to students who register during the month of July in at least 12 credit hours of courses for the Fall 2020 semester. High school dual enrollment students do not qualify.

In their release regarding this incredible opportunity, Chancellor Dr. Rick Bateman, Jr. says, “We are excited to make this scholarship opportunity available to more of our students. We will continue to find ways to assist our students during the COVID-19 crisis because so many have been affected in our community. Our hope is that more students will take advantage of this opportunity to continue their education and receive the education and training they need at an affordable cost.”

The $450 scholarship will be applied to student accounts in August after they enroll in at least 12 credit hours of courses. Fall registration is open now and available on the BPCC website under Fall 2020.

And while the dust still has yet to settle and the uncertainty of COVID-19 still envelopes the area, BPCC has stepped in with options for courses this fall that are online and hybrid (online and on-campus) to help keep students on pace in their academic career. .

Fall classes begin August 21, but students must register by July 31, 2020 to qualify for the scholarship. To become a BPCC student, apply free online at
