Four students from Bridgewater were recently each awarded an annual $3,000 scholarship for a period of four years from the Persbacker Family Scholarship Fund at the Connecticut Community Foundation.

The recipients were Chelsea Berg, Sarah Case, Jeff Kaprielian and Stacy Sullivan.

The scholarship fund, the largest available to students from Bridgewater, annually provides awards for students who have demonstrated outstanding community service in town.

Each student may receive a total of $12,000 from the fund over four years.

Applications for the 2011 Persbacker Family Scholarship Fund will be available in January at the Shepaug Valley High School guidance department and online at www.conncf.org.
