Menard Bank has established a scholarship program to assist high school seniors of Menard High School who plan to continue their education in college.
This program is administered by Scholarship America®, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarship, tuition assistance, and other education support programs for corporations, foundations, associations, and individuals. Eligibility for individual programs is determined at the sole discretion of the sponsor, and eligible applications are reviewed by Scholarship America’s evaluation team. Awards for this scholarship are granted to eligible recipients without regard to creed, religion, sexual orientation, age, disability, or national origin.
Applicants to the Menard Bank Scholarship Program must:
The student, or their parent or grandparent, must have been a customer of Menard Bank for the prior 12 months as of the application deadline.
One award of $2,000 will be awarded to an applicant from Menard High School. The award is renewable up to three (3) additional years on the basis of maintaining full-time enrollment status and a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 or above on a 4.0 scale.
Awards are for undergraduate study only.
All applicants will be notified in May.
Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of Menard Bank. Payment is made in early August.
Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of academic record, demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities, work experience, a statement of goals and aspirations and any unusual personal or family circumstances. Financial need is not considered.
Preference will be given to students with a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or above on a 4.0 scale.
Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of Menard Bank play a part in the selection. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.
