The Bonner Foundation also will provide up to $1,000 for each of the two required summer service internships for food, travel, and living expenses. Awards are renewable for up to three additonal years as long as the recipient fulfills the program requirements each year.
20 awards offered annually.
Bonner Scholars are selected from the incoming first-year class and are expected to stay involved and support the program through their four years of college. Students who have graduated from the program often say it had a profound effect on their college experience, and often find that their experiences as a Bonner Scholar helped them discover their chosen career path.
