The Bollinger Foundation Accepting Scholarship Grant Nominations

Earlier this week, The Bollinger Foundation announced it is accepting nominations for scholarship grant awards for children of at least one deceased parent. The Foundation awards scholarship grants annually to families in which the deceased parent worked or surviving parent continues to work in the field of public housing, affordable housing, community development, or economic development. Grants are primarily awarded for educational expenses, including special education needs, school materials, and college tuition. The deadline for submitting nominations is May 6, 2016.

The Bollinger Foundation was created in 1989 in the memory of Steve Bollinger, who was Assistant Secretary for Community Planning and Development at the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development from 1981-1984. To date, the Foundation has awarded over $898,000 to over 150 families through the scholarship grant program.
