The Wisconsin Bankers Foundation has handed out four scholarships totaling $2,000 to a quartet of college students in the state.

Out of 160 applicants, a selection committee of bankers awarded scholarships to:

  • Allison Anderson, who will be attending her senior year at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater and has worked as a teller for almost three years at the Bank of Wisconsin Dells.
  • Lily Brewer, who is graduating from Albany High School and plans to attend UW-Madison in the fall. She is currently a teller at Capitol Bank, Madison.
  • Nicholas (Cole) Hicken, who is graduating from Waupun Area High School and plans to attend the University of Wisconsin-Madison where he will study agricultural economics.
  • Samuel Will, a second-year marketing student in the Wisconsin School of Business at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He is currently employed at the State Bank of Reeseville where he has worked as a customer service representative, credit analyst, and marketing and advertising creator. 

The scholarships are awarded annually to help current students further their education at an accredited Wisconsin college, university, or state-operated technical school. 

The WBF’s mission is to promote financial literacy and financial responsibility to the public and to broaden consumer empowerment in the financial services industry through research, education, grants and scholarships.
