Six Bridgewater College students have received the college’s 2019 Summer Christian Experience Scholarship and will serve on a full-time basis during the summer months, working at a variety of church-related camps. Each student was awarded a $3,500 or $4,000 scholarship—depending on the number of weeks working at the camp—from the scholarship program, which is funded by the Bridgewater College endowment fund.
