The Bonner Scholarship provides financial support for those admitted domestic students who demonstrate financial need and a commitment to service.
Please familiarize yourself with the information below before applying to the Bonner Scholars Program.
In addition to completing the Bonner Scholars Program application, you should ask someone to write a letter of recommendation for you. This individual should be someone with whom you do volunteer work (a supervisor, fellow volunteer or someone served by your volunteer activities) or someone outside your family who is familiar with the qualities and activities which qualify you for the Bonner Scholars Program.
As soon as you decide to apply for the Bonner Scholars Program, please take the following steps so that the person writing your recommendation will receive the information they need to work on their letter for you while you are working on the application.
We will notify all applicants of our decision by early March. Shortly thereafter, recipients will receive a financial aid package reflecting the Bonner Scholarship and any other additional aid to meet the student's total verified financial need.
