Congratulations are in order for all of the Beans for Brains scholarship winners and we are working really hard to make sure we can continue this great program!! Hopefully we will be able to expand this to larger prizes for students working towards a graduate degree. School is so expensive and boy don't I know it since my son Chris is starting his senior year of high school! Wow! I am making a list of every scholarship that he can apply for and believe me he WILL apply!
