B.E.E. Scholarships (Burquenos for Education and Empowerment)

B.E.E. Scholarships (Burquenos for Education and Empowerment)

BEE Scholarships’ high school scholarship has a particular focus of students: we look at students that have overcome struggles, either academic or personal. We look to award students that overcome these struggles and have improved academically, socially, and personally. Look for these aspects when selecting a scholarship recipient.



I want to share two scholarships to pass along to students.


BEE Scholarships High School Scholarship- This scholarship is intended for students that are often overlooked in the scholarship process. This high school scholarship was designed for students that are not the typical top-tiered students, but students that did not excel early in high school due to personal, social, or academic reasons, but then later realized the importance and value of education and have since improved. More generally, we are looking to award scholarships to students that demonstrate personal and academic growth and GRIT. While a stellar GPA does not necessarily exclude a student, we do emphasize growth as the primary factor in awarding scholarships. 

Here is the link to apply.



Se Vale Soñar Laptop Scholarship- was created to support first generation, low-income, Latino(a) students. No qualifications other than those. This scholarship is for students in grades 9-12. 

Here is the link to apply.


Please let us know if you have any questions.
