Alpine Bank – First Generation Scholarship
Guided by the philanthropic vision of J. Robert Young, Alpine Bank’s Chairman of the Board, many scholarships have been provided to students pursuing educational goals. The purpose of the Alpine Bank – First Generation Scholarship is to open doors to qualified first generation (student whose parent(s) did not complete a college degree) high school graduates to obtain a college education. Recognizing that these students are important contributors to the work force and our communities, this scholarship will support the cost of in-district tuition, books and fees to students who are pursuing an Associate or Bachelor’s degree and would not otherwise be able to attend college
