2012 Citizens Scholarship Winners

For the past 12 years, Citizens Bank Minnesota has provided local students the opportunity to receive a renewable $1,000 scholarship – up to $4,000 – to use towards their higher education as a full-time undergraduate at an accredited four-year college or university.

To apply for this scholarship, students must be clients of Citizens, have an open and active checking account, and attend the Real Life 101 Seminar.  The seminar discusses the next phase of these students’ financial lives: personal finance, insurance needs, managing their credit and their budgets, as well as what careers fit their personality types.  Students between 13-18 years old can attend at any point of their high school years, but can only apply for the scholarship during their senior year.

Citizens is pleased to announce the winners of the 2012 Citizens Bank Minnesota Scholarship: Minnesota Valley Lutheran’s Philip Biedenbender, son of Steven and Laurie Biedenbender, and New Ulm Cathedral’s John Hayes, son of Thomas and Patricia Hayes.

Citizens believes that supporting our local students through their education is a vital necessity to the future of our communities, and we are proud of the accomplishments these students have achieved so far in their young lives.  Citizens looks forward to what all of the scholarship winners will accomplish in the future!
