Bridge Foundation Scholarships for 2016-17

 

Our school has once again been selected to receive the Bridge Educational Foundation Scholarship for the 2016-2017 school year. The Bridge Foundation requires that all approved families fulfill 40 hours of community service for the school year. Any family who does not perform the requisite number of community service hours will not be eligible to receive scholarship assistance for the following school year. As you complete your volunteer hours, you will return the volunteer forms to school. We will then mail them to the Foundation. Volunteer hours can be accumulated throughout your community, church, school, etc.

 

To qualify for this scholarship, families of students must have an adjusted gross income of less than $91,620, with an additional $15,270 adjustment for each dependent.

Please fill out the Scholarship Application and return it to school with a copy of your 2015 Federal Income Tax Return (1040 form only). If a household did not file or cannot locate their most recent Federal Tax Return, the Foundation requires a letter written by the applicant, which must itemize all sources of income for every adult living in the household. This letter must be signed in front of a notary public. If you require this form, please contact the office.

 

Your cooperation in filling out this information is greatly appreciated since we have many deadlines in order to keep this wonderful grant.
