Bradley Bunte Scholarship

Need-based tuition assistance to families desiring Christ-centered, academically-focused Lutheran elementary education.

Through its partnership with YouthBridge, LESA established the Bradley Bunte Scholarship Endowment Fund. Bradley passed away on March 7, 2011, at the age of 21 in a tragic car accident. He attended Lutheran elementary schools as a child and later attended the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, where he was studying broadcast journalism. Bradley was a member of Beta Sigma Psi Lutheran fraternity and an active member and usher at University Lutheran Church.

To honor Bradley’s memory and the legacy of Lutheran education, the Bradley Bunte Scholarship Endowment Fund was established to provide need-based tuition assistance to families who are committed to providing an academically-focused Lutheran elementary school education for their children.
