Dating back to 2005, this scholarship has become an annual tradition for BPUB – with more than 100 scholarships awarded in that time. To reduce the amount of paper used by applicants and BPUB and to simplify the process for the students and judging panel, the Project SHARE Scholarship is completely online.

Project SHARE as a program was actually started in 1985. Funds from Project SHARE also go to assist families that need assistance with their utility bills. Money is raised from customer donations and BPUB’s Project SHARE Golf Tournament.
