Bernard B. Brusin and Mary L. Brusin Scholarship Fund, established as a memorial, provides renewable scholarships to Jewish and Roman Catholic students for college or vocational training.
Graduating seniors who are:
A) Residents of St. Louis County;
B) Have a family Adjusted Gross Income less than $75,000;
C) Have a cumulative high school GPA of 3.0 or higher;
D) Prescribe to either the Jewish or Roman Catholic faiths may apply.
Students should complete and submit in the DSACF Common Application by the deadline day. A complete application will also include an academic transcript (including standardized test scores), recommendations and financial need documentation. The application will also include a short statement of faith from all applicants.
The Scholarship Committee of the Community Foundation will select individual scholarship recipients. They will base their decision on the applicant's financial need, academic record, written recommendations and seriousness of purpose.
Awards Given from Fund
One or more scholarships (of about $5000/year), co-payable to the student and institution will be awarded each year. Generally, this annual award is divided into two installments- half for fall, half for spring- and is renewable for up to four years, assuming proper academic progress (2.5 or higher GPA) is maintained.
