Each year, the Bridges Academy Endowed Scholarship produces two scholarships for undergraduate students. This scholarship is funded solely by attendees of the Bridges Academy Lecture Series. The two scholarship recipients for 2011 were Ernesto Reyes-Hernandez '14 and Athena Tuilefano Mitchell '12. The recipients had the opportunity to meet and thank donors at the Bridges Academy Holiday Luncheon in December 2011.
