Each year, Resource Bank commemorates its 100th anniversary with the Centennial Service
Award. A maximum of ten $1,000 scholarships are awarded each school year. These $1,000
scholarships are awarded to graduating seniors that exhibit a strong sense of community pride
and are highly involved in volunteer work and community service activities.
This scholarship was developed to encourage and reward community involvement and
volunteer services by high school students in the communities served by Resource Bank.
Winning applicants will demonstrate characteristics of citizenship, commitment, ambition,
determination, organization, generosity, and caring.
Involvement in community service during high school may include individual activities such as
community beautification and clean-up projects, working with senior citizens, helping the
homeless, volunteering for the local fire department, rescue squad, hospital, or donating time to
a library, animal shelter, or park district. It may also include organized activities such as Habitat
for Humanity, 4-H, Boy Scouts or Girl Scouts, and/or church activities.
Applicants must be high school seniors receiving their high school diplomas from an accredited
high school in the DeKalb County area during the 2017-2018 school year. Applicants must also
have a minimum grade point average of 2.5, and must attend an institution of higher learning
beginning in the fall of their graduating year.
The application deadline is Monday, April 9, 2018.
