Our Students

BHCC students have amazing stories.

Their stories are hopeful; reaching to achieve a college degree, wishing for greater opportunities, dreaming of a better life for themselves and their families.

Their stories are complicated and sad and sometimes, impossible.  Their stories are real. 

BHCC scholars are invincible. 

Their stories tell tales of overcoming obstacles; poverty, homelessness, hunger. Stories of seeking refuge from evictions, escaping violence, rising above fear.

BHCC students and scholars are stars.

Their stories are those of full scholarships to four-year institutions like Brandeis University, Boston University, Cornell University, Johnson & Wales University, MIT, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Smith College, Tufts University, Wellesley College, and Wentworth Institute of Technology.  

Their stories prove that academic talent is not limited to those who can afford college. Ninety-five percent of students awarded BHCC Foundation Gala scholarships complete associate degrees within two to three years.

BHCC students and scholars are grateful.

In the words of a recent graduate: 

"I want to say thank you for empowering me to achieve the kind of outcome I used to think only happened to other people."

Please consider sponsoring the 2019 Bunker Hill Community College Foundation Gala. 

Your support will empower students to go beyond overcoming, escaping, proving, reaching, wishing, and dreaming. 

Your support will help them realize what they are: 

Students, Scholars and Stars....
