Youth Bridge students will be offered College scholarship opportunities this school year from the Elsie Kinney Memorial Fund and the American Contract Bridge League (ACBL). The Kinney Scholarship will be $500.
The ACBL scholarship is also $500 plus a potential additional $350 stipend for a senior that instructs 8 students 16 lessons in duplicate bridge during the current school year. Thus the ACBL total potential individual scholarship can be $850 for a Senior High School Bridge Student. Rose Steffensmeier was awarded the ACBL scholarship in 2013. This year will be the first year for the Kinney scholarship.
A committee of Rosemary Peck, Sue Loescher and Zip Mettenburg will have applications and will announce the scholarship winners in 2014.
