The BDK SCHOLARS Program offers financial awards to local families wishing to send their child to a private high school in the Greater Cincinnati area. Awards are determined by a student's passion for community service or financial need. In addition to receiving philanthropic mentoring, students agree to terms including participation in at least four local community service initiatives, annually, that we host or cooperatively accomplish with other local nonprofits. 

Instilling cultural awareness and fostering a commitment to serving others


The BDK Scholars Program is designed to provide financial assistance to high school students that meet specific criteria focusing on community service and academic accountability.

This program is a one year commitment to each student based on their current grade and remaining years in high school. 

Applications for the 2025/2026 school year will be accepted beginning January 1, 2025 with a deadline of February 15, 2025.



With community support, Scholars are given the tools and opportunities to help them embrace their potential and gain the confidence needed to serve the community. In addition to participating in at least four community service events per year, students may participate in one of our many mentoring programs such as CPR certification. 


Our Scholars love to give back! Through creating our own service initiatives or by locking arms with other local nonprofits, we instill cultural awareness and foster their commitment to serving others. These experiences build a sense of accomplishment in our students and pride in the community.

We provide our Scholars with a variety of experiences to empower them to recognize social challenges and take initiative in pursuit of implementing solutions. Our hope, as our Scholars transition into adulthood, is that their passion for volunteerism continues to flourish and inspires others.
