Each year, the Business Technology Association (BTA) awards a number of $1,000 and $1,500 scholarships — as well as one $3,000 scholarship — to qualified sons and daughters of full-time employees of BTA member dealerships. The deadline for BTA scholarship applications for the 2018-2019 school year is May 1, 2018; applications must be postmarked by May 1.

Members may download a scholarship application at www.bta.org/Scholarships (a username and password is required to access the application), or they can email info@bta.org or call (800) 505-2821 to request an application.

Applicants must submit information on school activities; leadership positions; work experience, recognition and awards; and community involvement. The application process also requires transcripts and an essay. An independent, impartial evaluator reviews the applications and selects winners.

Note that only the student children of full-time employees of current BTA member dealerships are eligible for BTA scholarships. Students must maintain a class schedule of at least 12 hours of accredited college courses at a two- or four-year college, university or technical/trade school. BTA scholarships may be used for tuition, books, school supplies and lab fees.

For the current 2017-18 school year, BTA awarded $28,500 in scholarships to 24 students.

This BTA member benefit got its start on Feb. 23, 1968, at the retirement dinner of Dorothy R. Ames when the BTA East District (then EROMDA) announced the creation of the Dorothy R. Ames Scholarship Foundation. In 1971, that foundation transitioned into what is today the BTA Scholarship Foundation. Since the 1984-85 school year, BTA has awarded 1,422 scholarships to deserving students, for a total of $1,606,500.
