Balfour Beatty Communities Foundation has awarded more than $120,000 in scholarships to residents living in residences owned and managed by Balfour Beatty Communities. The academic scholarships were awarded to high school seniors, undergraduate students and graduate students attending accredited educational or technical institutions. The majority of the scholarships were granted to students of military families living in military homes owned by Balfour Beatty Communities throughout the United States. “We’re proud to have the opportunity to help these students take this important step in achieving their goals,” Kathy Grim, board member of the Balfour Beatty Communities Foundation, said. “The promise and potential of so many students came through in their essays, and it’s a true honor to be able to invest in the academic careers of our residents. We look forward to continuing this tradition for years to come.” West Point Family Homes was pleased to announce that seven of its residents—Abigail Gash, Allison Hanus, Megan VanSweringen, Joseph McInvale, Rizaldo Salvador, Faith East and Riley Post—have received scholarships for the 2019-20 academic year through Balfour Beatty Communities Foundation.

Scholarships are awarded based on an essay submission as well as students’ academic achievements, GPA, community involvement and financial need. The scholarships are given as part of the foundation’s ongoing goal to encourage and promote the pursuit of education and commitment to community leadership.
