Wisconsin Bankers Foundation: Four students awarded $2,000 scholarships

MADISON, Wis – 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:
