Rockland Trust offers scholarships

Continue reading below

Rockland Trust bank is offering six $2,500 college scholarships to students in its coverage area. Graduating high school seniors in Plymouth, Barnstable, and Bristol counties and in the towns of Braintree, Cohasset, Quincy, Randolph, Somerville, Stoughton, Watertown, Weymouth, and Wellesley are eligible to apply. The bank has been offering scholarships to local students for decades, but began its modern application process program in 2008, according to Ellen Molle, head of public relations for the bank. She said in the past five years, the company has given out nearly $100,000 in scholarships. “We began this program because we wanted to do something that would promote education and be impactful for community,” Molle said in a phone interview. She serves on the scholarship selection committee, and said it is “a tough decision every year.” “When I read these applications, I am in awe of these students,” she said. “They have 4.5 GPAs, they do all these extracurriculars and sports, they’re just really impressive.” Applications for the scholarships are due March 15. Forms are available at any Rockland Trust office, and can be downloaded at www.rocklandtrust.com.
