Save nearly $4,000 with an interest free loan from BLESS!
APPLICATIONS ARE DUE BY JUNE 1ST!
The BLESS Fund, sponsored by Bartlesvile's own Service & Technology Corporation, has awarded over $296,000 in scholarships to 78 college bound Seniors since 1994.
The awards, in the form of interest free loans, typically range from $1,750 to $2,000 per year, and can be renewed each year for up to four years of the student's college education.
Students and parents can save nearly $4,000 in interest costs over the life of the loan. After graduation, loan repayments are kept at a low monthly rate of $100, so as not to create too much monthly debt burden for new graduates.

Each year the BLESS Scholarship Committee will select recipients of the BLESS Scholarship. Upon receipt of proof of enrollment at an institution recognized by BLESS, a check for the award amount, up to $1,750, will be sent directly to the institution in the name of the recipient. The scholarships awarded may be extended from year to year for a period of four years, providing the recipient maintains a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.5 and remains in good standing with the institution attended. The normal cumulative award is $7,000.00 per scholarship.
The four-year duration and the $7,000.00 cumulative total loan can be extended by the scholarship committee for graduate studies or under other special circumstances.
Two months from the time the recipient of the scholarship award ceases to be a full-time student at the educational institution, the recipient is expected to begin repayment of the award at the rate of $100 per month to the BLESS Scholarship Fund, Inc. until the award is fully repaid. Extensions for the initiation of repayment will be considered by the BLESS Scholarship Committee under very special circumstances.
