About the Scholarship:

In 2007 the Bainbridge Island-North Kitsap Interfaith Council began awarding each year a monetary scholarship to a graduating high school senior who has been active within one of the IFC-affiliated faith groups. Seniors are nominated by their faith group, and a committee appointed by the IFC selects the recipient. This year the scholarship to be presented will be worth approximately $500.

The Bainbridge Island-North Kitsap Interfaith Council Scholarship is given in memory of Bob Satterwhite from the First Church of Christ, Scientist who gave so much of his energy and time to the Interfaith Council.
