Honoring Andrew Fluegelman (1943-1985) and David Bunnell (1947-2016), two pioneers of the technology media industry, the Fluegelman Bunnell Award provides laptop computers to outstanding San Francisco Bay Area high school seniors on their way to college. The award is granted by the Fluegelman Bunnell Fund, a collective action fund of Tides Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit designated by the IRS.

We are looking for Bay Area students who have overcome significant economic, social and family hardships, and who have contributed to their communities by participating in after-school and/or community programs. You can read about the accomplishments and plans of 2017's fellows here.

The application process is now completed for 2018's awards. Thanks very much for your interest. This year's fellows will be announced in June and honored at our annual luncheon.

We gratefully welcome the tax-free donations that make these awards possible.
