The Bonita Business & Professional Association (BBPA) established the Charles and Ardel Hamilton Scholarship in 1990 with assets they received from the Hamilton’s.  Well-rounded students with a record of past achievement and future potential are encouraged to apply.  Community service, academic achievement and financial need are considered in awarding this scholarship. Today, the Bonita Museum & Cultural Center is the manager of the scholarship and with the Board and the San Diego Foundation we have been able to help many excellent students with the costs of education.
