2017 Scholarship

Apply Now

We’ve teamed up with the South Dakota Bankers Foundation again this year to give away six $1,000 scholarships to area high school seniors.

What are you passionate about? We’ve scrapped the typical 500-word essay requirement and have asked you to submit a 30-60 second YouTube or Vimeo video showcasing your talents.

Submission ideas could include:

  • A poem or song you wrote
  • A description of an art piece you created
  • Your volunteer efforts
  • A video game or website you designed
  • A clip(s) showing your athletic ability
  • Other – be creative!

You do not need to be a customer of First National Bank in order to qualify. Each applicant must, however, be a graduating area high school senior and plan to attend an accredited South Dakota institution of higher learning (public or private) as a full-time student.

All applications are to be emailed to [email protected] by Wednesday, March 15, 2017. If you have any questions, feel free to message us on Facebook or Twitter.

Over the last 10 years, we’ve awarded more than $52,000 in scholarships through this program! With financial strength and an exemplary service culture, we stand strong as an organization of people who care deeply about our community and one another.
