Bayou Industrial Group is accepting applications for the 2023 B.I.G. Scholarship Program now through April 20, 2023.  Each year, Bayou Industrial Group awards scholarships to graduating high school seniors 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.

While the main focus of the scholarship program is still on graduating high school seniors, we will now also consider applications from non-traditional students residing in Lafourche, Terrebonne, Assumption, or St. Mary Parishes. Additionally, while the main focus of the scholarship program is still on two and four year degree programs, B.I.G. will also consider applications for students pursuing industrial certifications and non-degree programs. Scholarship amounts for these programs will depend on program costs and other factors. B.I.G. recognizes the importance of these certifications to the employers in our region, and proudly support students’ efforts in attaining them since it improves our local workforce.

Contact B.I.G.’s Executive Director Deanna Lafont at info@bayouindustrialgroup.com with any questions.
