BAPA & Bosana Foundation

In 2023, BAPA celebrates its eighth year of awarding scholarships to high-achieving Bosnian-American students actively contributing to their communities.

What is BAPA Scholarship?

BAPA Scholarship is designed to support Bosnian-American students in navigating the educational system and advancing their professional aspirations.

Starting in 2022, Bosana has partnered with BAPA to sponsor one BAPA scholar annually. BAPA selects multiple students each year, and Bosana will cover the cost of one scholarship, amounting to $5000.
