Centennial Service Award

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, Kane, or LaSalle County areas during the 2021-2022 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. Resource Bank will notify the chosen recipients' high schools for inclusion in their senior awards program.
