The International Union is pleased to announce the opening of the 2021 U.S. Bates scholarship program. Every year the program selects three students to receive a stipend of $5,000 per year for up to four years – up to $20,000 total.

Beginning in 2021, the re-designed program will be administered by International Scholarship and Tuition Services (ISTS). 

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the International Union has waived the SAT/ACT exam requirement for the 2021 U.S. Bates scholarship. Students do not need to take the SAT or ACT exam to be eligible to apply. To be considered for the scholarship, a student must:

  • Be a senior in high school
  • Plan to enter college in the fall of 2021
  • Be the child or stepchild of a U.S. member in good standing of a BAC Local
