The Foundation Board has had another difficult time selecting as there were excellent candidates as well as an increase of nearly 50% in the number of applications to the Anna Gunilla Bentel Scholarship. The six recipients again showed academic excellence and leadership at a level which earns them the ability to be forever linked to the name of Gunilla Bentel. The Trustees feel these individuals will be among the next leaders in the profession. The Anna Gunilla Bentel Scholarship is restricted to tuition, books and fees.
