BC Student Snags VFIC-Norfolk Southern Scholarship

The Virginia Foundation for Independent Colleges (VFIC) and Norfolk Southern announced today that Chelsea H. Kimlel – a junior majoring in business administration at Bridgewater College – is one of only three college students in Virginia to win the 2013 VFIC/Norfolk Southern Scholarship.

Kimlel is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Keith Kimlel of Spotsylvania, Va.

The $10,000 scholarship is administered by the VFIC and funded by Norfolk Southern, one of the nation's premier transportation companies.

Kimlel will receive $5,000 in her junior year and $5,000 in her senior year, contingent on continuing to meet or exceed the original scholarship requirements.

Scholarship recipients are selected in a statewide competition open to first-semester, junior-year applicants from all 15 colleges and universities in the VFIC consortium who are seeking degrees in economics, business, finance, accounting or related fields, and who are interested in careers in a corporate setting.

Founded in 1952, the VFIC is a nonprofit fund-raising partnership that supports the programs and students of the 15 leading private colleges in Virginia, of which Bridgewater is one.
