The Benjamin Franklin Institute of Technology “Think Tech” Scholarship is designed to support one future tech professional and BFIT student who wants to take their skills to the next level.
To be eligible for this opportunity, you must have BFIT as a college of interest and you must be considering a career in these fields or something similar.

The winner will be publicly announced on Mar 31, 2021. Prior to the announcement date, we may contact finalists with additional questions about their application. We will work with donors to review all applications according to the scholarship criteria. Winners will be chosen based on the merit of their application.
We will send the award check to the financial aid office of the winner’s academic institution or future academic institution in their name, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school’s requirements).
