Human Rights Task Force Offers Two Scholarships for 2021
The Bonner County Human Rights Task Force is once again offering two human rights scholarships to graduating seniors in Bonner County. The scholarships are available to public, private and homeschool students. The amount of the Darby & Amber Campbell Memorial Scholarship varies from $500 to $2,500 depending on the number of scholarships awarded. The amount of the Erik Robin Bruhjell Memorial Scholarship varies from $500 to $1,000.
The mission of the Bonner County Human Rights Task Force (BCHRTF) is to promote and secure mutual understanding among all people. BCHRTF recognizes that it is the racial, social and cultural diversity of our people that makes Bonner County a rich and worthwhile place to live.
In order to apply, the student is asked to submit the common application as well as the Campbell and/or Bruhjell application. Both BCHRTF applications ask the student to write thoughtful essays on human rights as well as to respond to questions on the application. The student’s involvement in activities supporting human rights and financial need are also considered.
Applications are available on the BCHRTF website at bchrtf.org and on local school websites. The deadline for applications is 9am Monday, April 12th at the student’s high school counseling center. Applications may also be submitted directly to the Task Force (same deadline) at: Darby & Amber Campbell and/or Erik Robin Bruhjell Memorial, P. O. Box 1463, Sandpoint, ID 83864.
