Since 2001, Independence Bank has awarded over $265,000 in college scholarships to high school seniors within our bank footprint. In 2011, we were happy to award 28 scholarships totaling $54,500 to 18 of the finest young people in our 7 counties. A record number of applications were received and we appreciate each and every one of them. The class of 2011 definitely shows great promise for our community in the future.
The Independence Bank Scholarship Program accepts applications each year beginning in February with the Awards Ceremony to be held in April.
