High School Seniors, Do You Want to Make a Difference?

You can, as a bonner scholar...and, earn money, too!

Athens, W.Va. - The Concord College Bonner Scholars Program is currently accepting applications from high school seniors who plan to enter college in the fall of 2000.

Concord College is proud to be part of this significant student scholarship effort, which not only provides needed financial assistance to qualified students, but also encourages the students’ participation in activities for the betterment of their communities.

The deadline for applications is Friday, April 14, 2000, at 4:00 p.m.

Interested students should contact the Bonner Scholars office at 1–304-384-6009 for more information.


Concord College Notes: Public service is a very important part of Concord College's mission to the local community. The Corella and Bertram F. Bonner Foundation based in Princeton, New Jersey, has recognized this commitment to service and endowed the college with funds to establish the Bonner Scholarship Program. This scholarship program provides 80 Concord students with financial support for their education. Each student must then provide support to the community through volunteer services. Bonner Scholars are typically first generation college students with a record of academic success and a demonstrated concern for their home community. Students remain in the Bonner Scholarship Program for four years. During this time they provide an average of 10 hours of community support per week during the regular school year and 240 hours of service during the summer.
