About the B’nai B’rith Great Lakes College Scholarship Program


The B’nai B’rith Great Lakes Region is pleased to announce open enrollment for its College Scholarship Program for high school students who will be entering college in the fall of 2023. We anticipate awarding three scholarships for the 2023-24 academic year in the amount of $5,000 each. It is our goal that these scholarships will inspire the honorees to pay our gift forward after graduation by serving as leaders in their communities and as ambassadors for the B’nai B’rith Great Lake Region’s College Scholarship program.

Candidates will be judged by many factors including financial need, academic achievement, their record of community service, extra-curricular activities as well as other attributes. To be eligible candidates must:

  • Reside in Michigan.
  • *NEW DATE* Submit a completed B’nai B’rith Great Lakes Region (BBGLR) College Scholarship Application including the following required documents by the May 19, 2023 deadline. Please send in ALL of the required paper work to be fully considered for the scholarship:
