The scholarship program was established by BEC in 1998 to encourage and assist in educational pursuits of its members and their immediate families. Since then, BEC has awarded more than a quarter million dollars in scholarships. As a cooperative, BEC is guided by the seven cooperative principles, which include Education, Training and Information.
