Joseph A. De Vito, president & CEO of The Village Bank announced today that the Auburndale Community Charitable Foundation is now accepting college scholarship applications from local high school seniors.

The seventeen scholarships totaling $50,000 will be awarded to college-bound students of the Class of 2022. The recipients can apply the scholarship funds toward tuition, room and board, or supplies at an accredited college or university. The application deadline is April 15, 2022.

The Foundation will award two $10,000 scholarships and fifteen $2,000 scholarships. The $10,000 scholarship recipients are required to have demonstrated active involvement in community and/or charitable causes, in a leadership capacity, in addition to academic achievement. Eligible Newton or Wayland residents will be considered for both award categories. Applicants who do not reside in Newton or Wayland will be considered for the $2,000 awards.

“The Village Bank has a strong commitment to supporting the community we live in and initiatives that impact our friends and neighbors,” said De Vito. “We are excited to support and recognize students in the community as they work towards their goals.”

Complete rules, requirements, and application forms are available online here.

The Auburndale Community Charitable Foundation’s investment in education since the program began in 1998 will total more than $950,000 with this year’s awards, according to De Vito. The scholarships are funded in part by the Annual Golf Classic held by The Village Bank each fall.
