Professional success is built on a solid educational foundation

MBACC Educational Scholarship Foundation

Each year, Myrtle Beach Area Chamber applauds students from 14 area high schools for their leadership and accomplishments inside and outside the classroom.

Myrtle Beach Area Chamber’s vision strongly reflects our commitment to leadership and the Grand Strand community. It’s your chamber’s goal to advance the economic vitality and quality of life through our education initiatives. These outstanding seniors will receive a scholarship from the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber’s Educational Scholarship Foundation, which is funded by local business contributions. The amount of the scholarship is determined by the Educational Foundation Board of Directors and is paid directly to the recipient to help offset first-year expenses related to higher education.  

2023 Scholarship Applications are now available and must be returned to school guidance counselors by Jan. 18, 2023.
