Scholarship Opportunities for New Students at BHCC

In addition to state and federal sources of financial aid available to qualified students, BHCC offers a number of scholarships to incoming students. By combining state and/or federal grants with College scholarships, some students may be able to cover their entire cost of attending BHCC, including books, transportation and living expenses. Depending on a student’s financial need, a BHCC scholarship may make it possible for the student to defer taking a federal grant, thus extending eligibility for PELL support so that it can be used for completion of a baccalaureate degree.

All scholarship applicants must complete the appropriate application form, submit a FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) form, and write a short essay. Applications can be found at:

  • On the Charlestown Campus
  • Office of Enrollment Management and Admissions (B204)
  • Office of Financial Aid (B213)
  • Offices of Enrollment Services, Advising, Academic Support (E235 – 236)
  • On the Chelsea Campus
  • TRIO offices
  • On the BHCC scholarships website
