The mission of Brighthouse Scholar Connections Inc. is to expand educational opportunities in higher education for students who are members of historically underrepresented or disadvantaged populations due to race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, or similar factors.

How Brighthouse Scholar
Connections Works

Brighthouse Scholar Connections, Inc. awards scholarships to underrepresented students from certain partner high schools in the Charlotte area and from various partner educational institutions, including colleges and universities, trade and vocational schools, and other institutions of higher learning.

All students enrolled at our partner educational institutions are eligible to apply for a scholarship, even if they did not attend a partner high school. Scholar Connections currently awards annual scholarships of up to $10,000 per student, and students may receive up to a maximum of $40,000 over 4 years. Scholarship award amounts may change over time as the program evolves to carry out its charitable purposes to meet the needs of eligible students.
