Each year, Bayou Industrial Group awards scholarships to students in the Bayou Region for enrollment at Nicholls State University and Fletcher Technical Community College. The BIG Scholarship Fund is supported by contributions from members with annual dues, the BIG Seafood Social for Scholarships, and other scholarship fundraising activities that may be held throughout the year.
Scholarship applications will be posted here when the application process opens for 2020, generally around February 1.
In 2019, BIG awarded $29,500 in scholarships to 10 local students – our highest award total to date! Thank you for your support of the BIG Scholarship Fund!
