The Bakersfield College Foundation and the Bakersfield College Financial Aid Office annually host the Honors Celebration the week before graduation every spring. It is the time when scholarships for the upcoming academic year are announced and academic and athletic awards are handed out for accomplishments for the year just ending. This year’s event had approximately 900 participants, including BC administration, donors whose generosity has funded the scholarship program at BC, faculty and staff, as well as over 200 scholarship and award recipients and their guests.
Over 500 scholarships are dispensed each year, totaling approximately $500,000 in scholarships and awards.
