Apply for the BRAG 2013 Scholarship Program

More than two decades ago the BRAG Scholarship Fund was founded as a means of providing needed financial assistance to students of color. The BRAG Board of Directors is proud to say they have stayed the course. They understand leadership and good citizenship comes with education. To that end, BRAG is firmly committed to their continued support of students who may have an interest in pursuing a career in retail and related industries.

The BRAG Scholarship is based on scholastic achievement, leadership, community service and need. The awards are to be used for tuition, books and/or supplies and will be disbursed in January of the school calendar year for college students and the following fall semester for High School students.  The money must be used within a one-school-year period. All monies not used within the designated period will revert back to the BRAG Scholarship Fund.  All scholarship funds are allocated directly to the University, not to the student.

An essay of 500 words on: “Brick and Mortar vs. Online Retailers”…friends or foe? How have online retailers changed the business in the last decade? must be submitted with your application.

Here is a list of the additional BRAG scholarship criteria:
•High School Students must have minimum Grade Point Average of 85

•College students are required to have a cumulative GPA of 3.0
•All applicants must be a US Citizen or Permanent Resident
• Must provide 2 Letters of Recommendation: (School, employment, and/or personal)

Scholarships will be awarded at BRAG’s Annual Scholarship and Awards Dinner Gala in New York. The Awards Gala will be held on Thursday, October 17, 2013. It is mandatory for selected students to attend the BRAG Annual Scholarship and Awards Dinner Gala to receive their Scholarship Award.
