Billiard Education Foundation Academic Scholarship Program

The Billiard Education Foundation (BEF) Academic Scholarship Program is an annual program administered by the BEF Scholarship Committee, under the direction and guidance of the BEF Board of Trustees. The objective is to grant scholarships to high school seniors who have benefited from the sport of billiards and are entering their first year of college.

Awards are offered in two categories: a single BEF “Excellence in Education” scholarship (one $2,000 award) and multiple BEF “Aiming for Higher Education” scholarships (three $1,000 awards). Each single applicant will be considered in both categories; only one completed application is required. The BEF reserves the right to make changes to these published policies and criteria at any time.

Scholarship Criteria
- A minimum 3.0 cumulative grade point average (GPA) or higher, on a 4.0 scale, is required
