Balfour Beatty Communities Foundation, Balfour Beatty Communities’ non-profit organisation, announced today that it has awarded 49 scholarships totalling more than $120,000 to residents spanning the company’s three portfolios—military housing, multifamily housing, and student housing.
The scholarships, ranging from $1000 to $3500 each, were awarded as part of the Foundation’s ongoing goal to encourage and promote the education and commitment to community leadership.
Balfour Beatty Communities residents, and their dependents, planning to attend an accredited educational or technical institution for the 2022/2023 school year were eligible to apply. Scholarship recipients were selected based on their academic achievements, community and school involvement, and financial need. Out of the 49 recipients, 39 are residents of Balfour Beatty’s military housing properties, five are from the company’s student housing, and three from its multifamily properties.
Kathleen Grim, Balfour Beatty Communities’ Foundation board member said “Balfour Beatty Communities are focused on delivering exceptional living experiences for all of its residents and our annual scholarship programme is an integral part of where the Foundation is making a meaningful difference. The selection committee faced a tough challenge this year as all the applicants had stellar credentials and impactful stories.
“The selected recipients are extraordinary members of their communities and we wish them all the very best as they further their education in pursuit of their dreams.”
Scholarship recipient Shannon Busch said: “This award means a lot to me. It’s helping me become a better leader by furthering my knowledge and allowing me to give back to my peers.”
This is the 14th year of the Balfour Beatty Communities foundation scholarship programme. Since its inception in 2007, the foundation has awarded more than 550 scholarships totalling more than $1.3 million to deserving residents living at military, multifamily and student housing communities owned and managed by Balfour Beatty Communities.
