The Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce (MBACC) Educational Foundation is accepting applications for college scholarships from high school seniors in the Grand Strand.
Each year, the Foundation awards college scholarships to graduating seniors from 14 local high schools. Selected students demonstrate consistently superior achievement inside and outside the classroom. 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.

We also understand that higher education is a vital component to the ongoing success of our community,” said Karen Riordan, MBACC President & CEO.
