MALVERN, Pa.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Balfour Beatty Communities Foundation, Balfour Beatty Communities’ non-profit organization, announced today that it awarded 64 scholarships to residents spanning the company’s three portfolios—military housing, multifamily housing, and student housing. The scholarships will support the students as they continue their education in undergraduate and graduate programs.
Residents and dependents planning on attending accredited educational or technical institutions were eligible to apply for the 2021 program. Scholarships were awarded based on an essay submission as well as students’ academic achievements, Grade Point Average, community involvement, and financial need. The scholarships are given as part of the Foundation’s ongoing goal of encouraging and promoting the pursuit of education and commitment to community leadership.
“Balfour Beatty Communities prides itself in supporting its residents and communities. Following an extremely challenging year, it was more important to us than ever to contribute as much as we could to our scholarship program,” said Chris Williams, president of the Balfour Beatty Communities Foundation. “Despite not being able to host our usual fundraising events, we were determined to continue the initiative that brought the Foundation to life.”
This is the 13th year of the Balfour Beatty Communities Foundation scholarship program. Since its inception in 2007, the foundation has awarded more than 500 scholarships to students of military families living in homes owned and managed by Balfour Beatty Communities, and students at Balfour Beatty Communities multifamily and student housing properties.
