Since 2011, the BAC has been awarding scholarships to local high school seniors and currently has over $100,000 in endowed scholarships thru the McNeese Foundation. The chapter awards four scholarships each year – multiple to incoming freshmen and one to an upperclassman.

Any student interested in applying for the BAC scholarship must first apply to, and be accepted by, McNeese State University. The application for the BAC scholarship is the same as the University’s admissions form. Please indicate that you are interested in scholarships during the online application process and include your honors, awards, and extracurricular activities.
