LOCAL Scholarship Program

The Deadline for LOCAL Scholars 2023 has passed.


The CBBC Bank LOCAL Scholars Program was established in 2015 as a new means to invest in the future of our community. The mission of the scholarship seeks to provide financial assistance of $500.00 each to five exceptional, graduating high school seniors accepted for undergraduate study in community colleges, technical schools and universities who have shown above-average qualities in community involvement. The CBBC Bank LOCAL Scholars program principally targets students in two or four-year academic programs; however, certificate/licensing programs (e.g., ultrasound techs, paralegal training, nursing, etc.) are also eligible.
