At the Better Business Bureau (BBB), we believe it is never too early to introduce and emphasize the importance of ethics. At the high school level, students begin to face ethical decisions that may impact the rest of their lives. They serve as role models whose moral compass not only guides their actions, but also influences those around them. The BBB seeks to honor ethical students for doing the right thing with the BBB Ethical Torch Essay Scholarship, available in Greater Arizona and Southern California.
We are offering scholarships to greater Arizona high school students, in grades 9-12. Our Ethical Torch Essay Scholarship Contest is an opportunity for students to showcase their unwavering integrity by describing an ethical dilemma that they have experienced. We award a total of $5k in scholarships to the top 5 winners in our contest with recognition at our Annual Torch Awards for Ethics ceremony. Students in grades 9-12 residing and enrolled in school in Apache, Coconino, Gila, Imperial, La Paz, Maricopa, Mohave, Navajo, Orange, Pinal, San Diego, Yavapai or Yuma Counties are invited to apply for this scholarship opportunity. Deadlines will vary, depending on which counties the applicants reside in.
