Our hope for the Andigo Scholarship is to relieve even just a portion of the financial burden of tuition, so our recipients can focus on their studies and on becoming our future leaders.
Schaumburg, Ill. (PRWEB) July 03, 2017
Ten local high school seniors each received $2,500 in college scholarship funds from Andigo Credit Union, in partnership with Liberty Mutual, for a total of $25,000 in program contributions for the 2017 high school graduates.
The 2017 Andigo Scholarship rewards high school seniors who maintain impressive academics while actively advocating for a person or a cause. Each applicant submitted an essay detailing their good cause, two recommendations, their GPA and unofficial transcript. A committee of Andigo team members reviewed and discussed the applications to select the 10 winners.
“We’re thrilled to see so many smart young people doing great work in our community. Our hope for the Andigo Scholarship is to relieve even just a portion of the financial burden of tuition, so our recipients can focus on their studies and on becoming our future leaders,” said Jean Theis, Chief Operating Officer at Andigo.
$125,000 has been awarded in scholarship funds to 45 students since the scholarship program was founded in 2011.
