One of the most rewarding perks of being in a student organization such as FBLA is access to a number of scholarships sponsored by universities, other organizations, and FBLA. These scholarships are an excellent way to receive financial aid to further your education in a college university system.
These scholarships can be found at https://www.fbla-pbl.org/fbla/membership-benefits/scholarships/ on the FBLA-PBL National Website.
Take advantage of these benefits that are available to you for simply being a member. Let all your hard work with this organization be paid back in the form of recognition or scholarships!
Also, be sure to keep in mind scholarship opportunities available specifically for Georgia FBLA members because Georgia FBLA offers members $10,000 in scholarships each year.
Furthermore, also be on the lookout for national recognition and awards due dates. Submissions for Business Achievement Awards will be due starting in March. Keep in mind that you will receive national recognition for earning the America Level Award.
