History - Regulations & Procedures - Application

In February 1989 the Big Bay de Noc Board of Education established the Big Bay de Noc Scholarship Foundation. Board action was taken upon the recommendation of a group of citizens interested in establishing a financial foundation upon which to build an ongoing and perpetual scholarship program for graduates of Big Bay de Noc High School.

The foundation serves as an incentive for area students to seek higher education. It provides evidence of the confidence in the educational ability of local students, and provides proof of the area’s support for higher education.

In 2004, the scholarship committee decided to join The Delta County Community Foundation. Currently all other schools in the Delta-Schoolcraft ISD participate in this foundation. The foundation is an endowment fund, which means bigger and better scholarships for students here at Big Bay de Noc, due to larger amounts of investments being invested. It also means greater things for you the donor. Please consult the school office for some great tax credits available by donating to the community foundation, as a result of us joining the foundation. Your donation will be still be credited to the Big Bay de Noc Scholarship Account, through the foundation. Please watch for further information coming soon.
