Are you a high school senior that is in need of a college scholarship? This year, Independence Bank will pass the $1 million dollar mark on scholarships they have awarded to deserving high school seniors within the twelve counties they serve (including Jefferson County). This year alone they will award over $100,000!
The Independence Bank scholarship program is designed to encourage high school seniors within the Bank’s footprint to continue their education. Applicants will be judged based on typed essay, high school grades, ACT scores, financial need, extracurricular activities and volunteer tasks.
Applications can be completed online by visiting 1776bank.com and searching “scholarships.” The deadline to apply is February 11, 2019. All scholarship recipients will be notified by April 1 via the email address provided on the application. A Scholarship Reception will be held April 7. If you have any questions, please call or visit your nearest Independence Bank location or email firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also see Mr. Manning or Ms. Kerns for more information.
