Beech Scholarship Fund

Recognizing Success and Assisting the Future

The Beech Scholarship Fund (BCS) is in honor of Dr. Bernard C. Watson, John C. Haas, F. Otto Haas, Floyd W. Alston, and Robert W. Smith. Annually, BCS awards a $1,000 scholarship to deserving, minority students of color. The scholarships are awarded to qualifying and deserving high school seniors entering Temple University, Cheyney University, Lincoln University, or Community College of Philadelphia as a full-time freshman, or a current full-time undergraduate student at one of the four colleges for the fall 2017 academic school year.

The funding commitment from the Beech Scholarship Fund sets a criterion that includes having a grade point average of 2.75 or higher and declaring a major in Arts, Business, Engineering, Education, or Liberal Arts, and are active in extracurricular activities through their school, church, community, or work.
