|Four Wisconsin Students Awarded $2,000 Wisconsin Bankers Foundation Scholarship
MADISON – The Wisconsin Bankers Foundation is pleased to announce that four Wisconsin students have each been selected to receive a $2,000 scholarship. These scholarships are awarded annually to help current students further their education at an accredited Wisconsin college, university, or state-operated technical school.
The 2021 Spring Scholarships — which are available to any Wisconsin high school senior as well as current college students and adults pursuing higher education who are employed by member banks — received over 160 submissions this year from applicants across Wisconsin.
A selection committee made up of bankers chose the four 2021 scholarship winners. Applicants were to submit a video, digital presentation, written essay, or other creative means to explain the importance of financial literacy for students.
The four scholarship recipients are:
Allison will be attending her senior year at UW-Whitewater and has worked as a teller for almost three years at the Bank of Wisconsin Dells.
Lily is graduating from Albany High School and plans to attend UW-Madison in the fall. She is currently a teller at Capitol Bank.
Nicholas (Cole) Hicken
Cole is graduating from Waupun Area High School and plans to attend UW-Madison where he will study agricultural economics.
Samuel is a second-year marketing student in the Wisconsin School of Business at UW-Madison. He is currently employed at the State Bank of Reeseville where he has worked as a customer service representative, credit analyst, and marketing and advertising creator.
The Foundation begins accepting scholarship applications in early spring each year. For more information, please visit wisbank.com/foundation-scholarships/.
