Jeff Bridges Memorial Scholarship

In May 2021, the South Florida Winter Guard Association lost longtime board member, judge, clinician, and wise-man Jeff Bridges. His impact on marching bands, drum corps, and winter ensembles around the country is immeasurable. As one of our Hall of Fame Members, we know that the activity in South Florida would not be the same if it weren't for his decades of contributions and support to our community.

This scholarship fund is dedicated to support those members of the SFWGA that are also planning to march in drum corps for 2023 summer.

Please consider making a one-time contribution.

Registration closes on March 25, 2023.
