The Foundation currently awards three, $1,000 scholarships, renewable for four years ($4000) to a Bedford High School graduate. Beginning in 2004, the Foundation started granting one scholarship for $500, renewable for four years, in memory of former trustee Chris Valley. In 2017 the Foundation started granting one scholarship for $500, renewable for four years, in memory of former Principal, Paul G. Ward.  Students apply initially each Spring through the Bedford High School Guidance Office. Foundation members make the selection, which is announced each June.

One of the priorities of The Bedford City Schools Foundation is enhancing quality education. These scholarships are used to help defray the high cost of post-secondary education in colleges and universities both within and outside the Ohio borders. Students are invited back each year to a breakfast meeting, along with parents and guardians, to talk about their college experiences, academic success, and extracurricular projects. Students are selected by an application process at the end of their senior year. Graduates of Bedford City Schools and recipients of these scholarships have proven themselves to be successful, motivated, and altruistic. We applaud their success.
