CBAI Foundation for Community Banking Scholarship


First Neighbor Bank is proud to help promote the CBAI Foundation for Community Banking’s 2017 Annual Scholarship Program, which enables Illinois high-school seniors to enter a statewide essay-writing contest. The goal of the program is to increase public awareness of community banks and their contributions.

 

First Neighbor Bank invites and encourages our Cumberland, Neoga, Mattoon, Charleston, Casey, and Shiloh high school seniors to apply for this scholarship.  Seniors will need to visit their school’s Guidance Counselor for rules and application forms.

 

This year, the 31st year of the Program, the total amount of money offered is $23,000. A monetary award in the amount of $1,000 a year for up to four years of higher education will be awarded to the author of the best submission to the CBAI Foundation by a participating Illinois high-school senior. As many as 12 – first-place awards of $1,000 each and 13 – $500 second-place awards are available to cover all of the 13 CBAI-designated regions of the state. An additional $500 will be awarded to the high school of the statewide recipient.

 

Entry Deadline: First Neighbor Bank must receive entries on or before January 25, 2017 at 3:00 p.m. to be eligible for judging.
