Austin Bank of Chicago announces that they are accepting college scholarship applications from area high school students. Colette Loesher, President & CEO of ABC Bank, states, “ABC Bank will be awarding six $1,200 college scholarships to local high school students that are college- or technical school-bound. This is a continuation of a 21-year scholarship program sponsored by ABC Bank that aggregates in excess of $100,000 in scholarship awards from the time of its inception.”
High school students in their senior year are eligible to submit applications if they reside within the area bounded by Pulaski Road, Austin Boulevard, North Avenue, and the Eisenhower Expressway. Applicants must be graduating in May/June of 2011 and be accepted to a 2- or 4-year accredited university, college, or vocational and/or technical school program.
One of the criteria on which applicants will be judged is writing an essay entitled, Why I should be awarded an ABC Bank Scholarship. Local religious, political, and business leaders will judge the applications.
Loretto Hospital and its sponsoring organization, Renaissance Hospital Management, Inc., are joining ABC Bank again in offering an additional $1,000 in scholarships to four students. This is the sixth year that Loretto Hospital/RHM and ABC Bank have teamed up in this endeavor. The bank and hospital are offering ten scholarships for a combined total of $11,200.
Students interested in applying for scholarships should contact Angela Preston, Assistant Vice President of Marketing, at ABC Bank, 5645 West Lake Street, or by calling 773/854-2900, ext. 125.
