Salisbury Bank Announces 2017 Scholarship Program Enriching Local Communities Through Higher Education
April 13, 2017
Salisbury Bank is pleased to announce its 2017 Annual Time To Shine Scholarship Program. The Bank created its Scholarship Program in 2009 to assist students who have a proven financial need and who are already making a difference in their communities. Multiple scholarships may be awarded in the amount of $2,500.00 each to assist eligible students seeking a college degree in a variety of programs. Ideal candidates will be students of academic achievement, who possess a variety of interests and leadership experience, show consistent community involvement, and the desire to make their world a better place.
Eligible students must be residents of Litchfield, Berkshire, Columbia, Dutchess or Orange counties, and must be currently enrolled in a public high school, vocational, technical, or private school; be a homeschool student affiliated with such a school; or be a graduate or GED recipient entering their first year of college.
Applicants must be planning to enter an accredited college or university as a first year undergraduate student for the 2017/2018 academic year. Applicants will be evaluated according to a 100-point system that takes into account financial need; academic achievement; community service; volunteerism; and leadership. The top scorers will also be interviewed by the Bank’s Scholarship Committee.
The Scholarship Committee must receive completed applications and transcripts by 5:00 p.m. on
May 15, 2017. For application packets and detailed information about the scholarship program, visit the Bank’s website at salisburybank.com/scholarship or visit one of the Bank’s thirteen branch locations.
