Salin Foundation Announces 2014 Recipients of Scholarship Program

14 scholarships awarded across Indiana

INDIANAPOLIS--()--Family owned and Indiana-based Salin Bank and Trust Company today announced that the Salin Foundation Community Scholarship Program has awarded $28,000 to 14 Indiana students who will begin a new semester at universities and colleges this fall.

The program, now in its 14th year, is designed to assist the higher education needs of high school seniors from more than 22 schools in communities served by Salin Bank.

“Encouraging more of Indiana’s young men and women to go to college or attain career and technical skills beyond high school is one of Indiana’s highest priorities,” says Bill Salin, II, President and CEO of Salin Bank. “This program by the Salin Foundation gives us the opportunity to express our gratitude to the people and communities that Salin Bank serves,” adds Salin. “We believe the future is dependent on the success of the next generation – and by providing financial assistance to some very worthy students in Indiana, we are helping this new generation achieve their academic dreams.”

Each of the 14 awards is worth $2,000 and will assist students who plan to enroll in a full-time course of undergraduate study at an accredited two- or four-year college, university, or vocational school located in Indiana.

Scholarships are given based on academic achievement, demonstrated leadership in school and community activities, and the education goals of the applicant. Each application is reviewed by individuals outside of the Salin Foundation. Awards are made without regard to gender, age, race, religion, nationality, or disability.

Applications for the scholarship are available at participating schools and at all Salin Bank and Trust Company Banking Center locations.
