$50,000 in college scholarships will be awarded by The Village Bank

For the 18th consecutive year, The Village Bank’s Auburndale Community Charitable Foundation will award scholarships to local college-bound high school seniors. Announcement of this year’s awards, which will total $50,000, was made today by Joseph A. De Vito, president and CEO of The Village Bank.

The Foundation will award two $10,000 scholarships and fifteen $2,000 scholarships. The $10,000 scholarships require that, in addition to academic achievement, the recipient must have been actively involved in community and/or charitable causes, in a leadership capacity.

“The $10,000 scholarships will recognize students who not only excel, but who also share The Village Bank’s strong commitment to supporting the community and initiatives that directly benefit our friends and neighbors,” said De Vito.

The scholarship awards can be applied toward college tuition, room and board, or supplies. Complete rules, requirement information, and application forms are available at local high schools and at The Village Bank’s branches in Auburndale, Newtonville, Nonantum, Newton Highlands, Waban, West Newton and Wayland. The information is also available online here. Completed applications must be received by the Bank no later than April 29, 2016.

Auburndale Community Charitable Foundation scholarships are funded in part by a 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 $598,000 with this year’s awards, according to De Vito.
