Introducing Scholarship Awards for IEIC’s BELLS Program

Imagine Etiquette Inc. (IEIC) is thrilled to introduce the BELLS Scholarship Awards Program. For years, IEIC's proprietor, Bernadette Fernandez, has championed enrichment classes in the Greater Los Angeles region, spanning public, private, and charter schools. Recognizing the potential to embed social etiquette into academic curricula, Ms. Fernandez pioneered the Business Etiquette Leadership and Life Skills (BELLS) program in 2018.

About the BELLS Program:
UC Doorways recognizes BELLS as a "g" elective course, equipping high schoolers for a vibrant college and career journey. The comprehensive curriculum touches vital areas like prudent budgeting, financial acumen, interviewing prowess, adept resume crafting, entrepreneurship, and other pivotal life-enhancing skills. BELLS stands as a beacon, assuring every participating student emerges more confident and skilled in life's multifaceted arena.

Why a Scholarship?

This initiative bridges the financial gap, ensuring that deserving students can benefit from the BELLS program, irrespective of their financial standing. Annually, IEIC earmarks five (5) scholarships, allowing high school students from all corners of the nation to immerse in the enriching BELLS online semester course.
