STARKVILLE, Miss. – Two retired engineering professors and Mississippi State alumni have established new scholarships in the Bagley College of Engineering.

The Philip and Susan Bridges scholarships in will benefit students in aerospace engineering and computer science and engineering – departments they have served for more than 20 years.

A $2,000 scholarship in each department will be awarded annually beginning in the fall of 2014. The Bridgeses said they hope the scholarships will help deserving students overcome the financial struggles of college.

“College is becoming more expensive, and we want to do something to help students who needed it the most,” Phil said.
