Community Excellence Scholarship

Community Excellence Scholarship   

If you're a senior in high school, you could win a $1,000 scholarship to help pay for you post-secondary education next year.

Frandsen Bank & Trust is proud to announce the Frandsen Community Excellence Scholarship! We will be awarding 25 $1,000 scholarships to eligible high school seniors across Minnesota, North Dakota, and Wisconsin.

Five scholarships will be awarded in each region. (No high school can have more than one scholarship winner.) 

Who is eligible: Contest open to high school seniors in Minnesota, North Dakota, and Wisconsin, set to graduate in the spring of 2021, and who will attend any post-secondary institution in the fall of 2021 and:
  • Able to provide proof of admittance to a post-secondary institution as a full-time student by the fall of 2021
  • Student or Parent/Guardian must be a customer of Frandsen Bank & Trust
  • If the student, for some reason, does not attend school in the fall of 2021, their scholarship will be forfeited.
  • Scholarship payment will be made directly to the winners' school.

How students apply: Students will apply by writing a short essay answering the following question: “In 200 words or fewer, how have you supported your hometown, high school, or community?” 

When the program runs: The application window is open from January 1, 2021, through March 31, 2021. Winners will be announced before the end of April.

Winners will be selected by a committee based on how well the essay demonstrates the applicant's community support. Financial need is not a consideration.
