IMPORTANT 2020/2021 SCHOOL YEAR NEW SCHOLARSHIP ANNOUNCEMENT
The Bill Dickey Scholarship Association (BDSA) provides financial assistance to minority college-bound students.
On behalf of all Bill Dickey Scholars, we THANK YOU, the scholarship partners and supporters, for your financial commitments that have made Bill Dickey’s legacy and the scholarship program an essential source for students to achieve their dream of higher education. We are counting on your continued donations as a result of the unprecedented change that has occurred from the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and it requires the BDSA to reevaluate our scholarship program.
The Coronavirus has rapidly spread across the nation and its impact cannot be minimized. We believe it is imperative to proceed with extreme caution. We cannot in good faith award new students’ scholarships (freshmen students beginning their first year of college in 2020) as we cannot guarantee we’ll be able to deliver on that commitment. As a result, the BDSA has made the decision not to offer new student scholarships for the 2020-2021 school year.
Again, we encourage all partners and supporters to continue to donate to our cause. You are the vital links that make it possible for the BDSA to award scholarships.
We invite new students to check back with us the end of third quarter 2021 to determine the status of new scholarships. Thank you for your support and understanding.
