The Village Bank will award $50,000 in college scholarships

Kenneth C. Brennan, president and CEO of The Village Bank, announced today that the Bank’s Auburndale Community Charitable Foundation will award a total of $50,000 in college scholarships to graduating, college-bound high school seniors from the communities served by the Bank.

The Foundation will award two $10,000 scholarships and fifteen $2,000 scholarships. To be eligible for a $10,000 scholarship, in addition to academic achievement and other criteria, the student must have demonstrated active involvement in community and/or charitable causes, in a leadership capacity.

“The Village Bank has always had a strong commitment to the community,” said Brennan. “The special $10,000 scholarships give us the opportunity to recognize local students who share that commitment.”

The scholarship awards can be applied toward college tuition, room and board or supplies. Complete rules and requirement information and application forms are available at local high schools and at The Village Bank branches in Auburndale, Newtonville, Nonantum, Newton Highlands, Waban, West Newton and Wayland. They are also available online by clicking here. Completed applications must be received by the Bank no later than April 12, 2013.

Auburndale Community Charitable Foundation scholarships are funded in part by an Annual Golf Classic held each fall. The scholarship program began in 1998 with the announcement of five $2,000 scholarships to be awarded to members of that year’s graduating class.

The Foundation’s total investment in education since the program began will total $440,000 with this year’s awards, according to Brennan.
