The mission of the Bonner County Human Rights Task Force is to promote and secure mutual understanding and respect among all people. We are proud to sponsor two student scholarships for young people who have demonstrated a commitment to this vision.

Since 1998, the Task Force has invited local students to apply for this scholarship to honor students who have distinguished themselves by their interests and activities in the field of human rights. This scholarship is open to any high school senior graduating this year in Bonner County, including public, private and home schools.

Erik Robin Bruhjell Memorial Scholarship

Erik Robin Bruhjell was a SHS graduate and a resident of Bonner County for 15 of his 22 years of life. Many who knew Erik, felt he was wise beyond his years. This scholarship is intended to be a way to honor Erik's memory. The recipient should embody the enthusiasm, passion, inclusiveness, and commitment to human rights that Erik brought to the world.
