The Green Family Foundation and Firstrust Bank are pleased to present you once again with the Samuel A. GreenScholarship Program. The Scholarship Program was named in loving memory of Firstrust’s Founder and Samuel A. Green, who believed in the power of higher education and the right of all young people to pursue it. In the spirit of his legacy, we are inspired to carry his strong commitment to the youth in our communities. This scholarship honors those students who have demonstrated leadership potential and a commitment to making a substantial impact in the community. Applications run from November until the due date.
Scholars will receive a two-year award ranging from $10,000 to $25,000 towards their first two years of college. Those attending community colleges are eligible to receive awards ranging from $5,000 to $10,000. We will distribute a total of $360,000 in awards this year. High school seniors (including homeschooled students and GED recipients) or rising college freshman may take advantage of this wonderful opportunity by submitting 300 words or fewer on how they will use their college education to assist them in making a substantial impact in their community. Applicants must be legal United States residents or citizens living or attending school within the Greater Philadelphia or Lehigh Valley areas.
