The Brainerd Basketball Association provides $500 scholarships annually to graduating seniors from Brainerd High School, who participated in the BBA program, were members of the varsity basketball team and maintained a 3.0 GPA or higher. Both boys and girls are encouraged to apply for the scholarships each year, with at least one of each gender chosen as long as they meet the criteria.
Additionally, as part of the application, the applicants must provide essay answers as to how participating in basketball has impacted their lives, and specifically what they will take away from their basketball experience and how it will be applied in their future. The application process is handled in coordination with the Brainerd Public Schools Foundation.
