Posted on Tuesday, April 9, 2019

3Rivers is committed to supporting education and wants to help students succeed. This year, we’re giving away $20,000 in college scholarships to deserving students!

If you're a 3Rivers member and will be attending an accredited university, trade, or graduate school program full-time during the 2019-2020 academic year, then you qualify to apply!

The Prize Breakdown

Our Scholarship Committee will select nine students to receive $18,000 in scholarships (three $3,000 scholarships, three $2,000 scholarships, and three $1,000 scholarships). We'll also randomly select four lucky applicants (from a pool of students who apply by 11:59 PM EST on May 31) to receive a $500 bonus prize, simply for entering early!

How to Enter

Applying is easy. All you have to do is complete the application, upload your supporting documents (proof of enrollment, most recent transcript, letter of recommendation, and a recent photograph), and write a 500-1,000 word essay on ONE of the following topics:

  • What do you think the financial industry will look like ten years from now? Consider the positive and/or negative ways in which technology, social networking, and consumers’ wants and needs might change the way Americans do banking.
  • Describe what the term “financial freedom” means to you – now and in the future. Discuss what steps you plan to take to achieve your own version of financial freedom, as well as how 3Rivers might be able to help along the way.
