Dear Senior Guidance Counselor,  


We would love to introduce a wonderful opportunity at Lindsey Wilson College to you and your students – The Bonner Scholar Program!

The Bonner Program is a vehicle by which students commit and devote themselves not only to service but also to making connections between their community experiences and their academic pursuits. On behalf of the Bonner Scholar Program, we would like to invite your students to consider applying for this excellent service learning opportunity. In doing so, they are taking the first step to join a diverse group of dedicated individuals who are striving to make a difference.

The Bonner Scholar Program provides some financial support toward a college education for most of these students who demonstrate financial need and a commitment to service.

Lindsey Wilson College is one of approximately 67 colleges and universities nation-wide honored to host a Bonner Program; and, we are one of only four schools who received a $500,000 endowment in 2010 to help fund the program. Bonner Scholars will commit to an average of 10 hours of service a week- 280 for the academic year. These hours are made up mainly of time spent serving at a community site of the Scholar’s choosing, but also from activities such as workshops, meeting & training sessions, retreats, and trips that address important issues facing today’s society.


We would love for you to send us the names of your highly service-oriented students. We have enclosed a description for you and your students to review. If your students are interested in learning more about the Bonner Program from staff and current Bonner Scholars, we would encourage them to attend an Admissions Preview Day, open on Monday, February 18, and Saturday, March 23 (Talent Showcase-Bonner Interviews). Please contact me at 270-384-7469 for additional information regarding Bonner applications - the deadline to apply for the Bonner Scholar program is Friday, March 15th.   

If you have any questions or concerns or need more information, feel free to e-mail Natalie Vickous or Lainie Phelps You may visit our website at, where your students can also access a fully online application. For more information about the Bonner Foundation please visit their website at

We hope you will encourage your graduating seniors to join us as we try to make a difference in the lives of “Everybody, everyday.”

Thanks so much.
