BB&T Scholarship Program

The BB&T Scholarship is awarded to the children of associates of BB&T and its subsidiaries based on a selection and application process that begins during the child's junior year of high school. The program and the selection process are administered by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC), an independent, not-for-profit organization.

The purpose of the BB&T Scholarship program is to identify and honor exceptionally able high school students whose parents work for BB&T. Each BB&T scholarship stipend is $1,000 per year up to 4 years of undergraduate college study or until bachelor's degree requirements are completed, whichever occurs first. BB&T will award up to 20 scholarships annually. The recipient's annual stipend will not be affected by other scholarship aid or by an approved change in college.
