Becoming a Binc scholar isn’t easy – but those who have won scholarships in the past have a few things in common.
They want to work hard and invest in their future
Pursuing the career of your dreams through education is one way to invest in yourself and ensure that your job is something you will enjoy for a lifetime. Binc Scholars have pursued careers in tourism and travel management, graphic design and education knowing the fulfillment they will find in their chosen profession.
They want to pay it forward
Careers in veterinary medicine, political science and environmental science help Binc Scholars plan a future career of service to their communities, their nation and even their planet.
They are focused on achieving their dreams and goals
Not everyone knows what they want their future profession to be, but the Binc Scholars are motivated to realize their future callings, whether it be teaching, writing, finance or a career in medicine through furthering their education.
They don’t want to worry about debt
Instead of worrying about how they will pay their tuition costs, Binc Scholars can focus on studying and achieving their goals in fields like information technology, social work and law because their tuition is paid.
