PIERRE — BankWest Scholarship applications are now available online or at most BankWest branches throughout South Dakota.
The bank will award 15 scholarships to high school seniors and undergraduate college students who meet the eligibility requirements. The application deadline is Feb. 8.
BankWest Chairman, President and CEO Charles Burke III said each scholarship has a $1,500 value and may be used to fund tuition at any accredited, post-secondary educational institution.
Involvement in community activities, personal character and academic integrity are the three primary areas of consideration in the application process.
“This is the 20th year BankWest has provided scholarships to our area youth,” Burke said.
“Some of the brightest and most community-involved students come from South Dakota and this is one way that BankWest encourages them to pursue their academic dreams.”
To apply for a 2013 BankWest Scholarship, students must meet the following criteria:
• Be a BankWest deposit account holder for a minimum of six months preceding the application deadline.
• Be a United States citizen.
• Be a high school senior or full-time undergraduate student currently attending an accredited post high school educational institution.
• Have not previously received a BankWest Scholarship.
