Bridge Scholarship for Graduating High School Seniors

The Kathy Rolfe Bridge Scholarship is administered through the Truman Heartland Community Foundation. This $500 scholarship is open to graduating high school seniors who are former bridge students of Kathy Rolfe or to students of students. In addition, the applicant must have at least a B average and have earned at least 1 masterpoint (black, red, silver, or gold) and be a member of ACBL. The scholarship can be renewed for an additional 3 years if the recipient maintains at least a B average in post-secondary work and earns additional masterpoints (or fractions thereof) in each succeeding year. Applications are available through this website Truman Heartland Community Foundation.

So if you are interested in pursuing this scholarship and need practice or a partner to play at a duplicate club, keep informed about when Kids Bridge practice nights are being offered or call me when you are ready to go play duplicate. I’ll help get you started! I’ll play with you for up to 4 sessions, paying my own entry fee. For sessions 5 to 9, you’ll need to pay my entry fee. Beyond that, I charge $30 to play with me plus you pay my entry fee.
