BPUB Waives SAT/ACT Scholarship Requirement


BPUB Waives SAT/ACT Scholarship Requirement

The Brownsville Public Utilities Board will not require standardized test scores such as the SAT and ACT for this year’s Project SHARE Scholarship. The decision reflects admission requirements for this year’s graduating seniors with many schools dropping the SAT/ACT requirement.

The application process is now open for BPUB’s Project SHARE Scholarship program. Ten scholarships are available in the amount of $1,000 to graduating high school seniors.

To qualify for the BPUB Project SHARE Scholarship, applicants must:

  • Be a graduating high school senior.
  • Live in a household with a minimum of one year of utility service with BPUB at the application deadline date.
  • Plan to attend an accredited institution of higher education in the United States.

Standardized test scores submitted with the scholarship application will not not receive a score.

To simplify the process, the Project SHARE Scholarship is completely online. Students may apply for the scholarship at bpubscholarship.com through 5 p.m. Feb. 15. Upon selection, BPUB will send recipients’ funds directly to the applicable financial aid office for disbursement.

All majors qualify for the BPUB Project SHARE Scholarship.
