Seniors at Fremont High School, Fremont Learning Center and Archbishop Bergan High School are invited to apply for a Hometown Scholarship

Please submit applications by April 1, 2016

The First State Bank & Trust Company Hometown Career Support Scholarship is funded by First State Bank & Trust Company. It was created to help those outstanding and talented students who plan to attend a post secondary vocational, trade or technical school in Nebraska or Midland University. We hope it will help to supply skilled persons to the Fremont area, reducing shortages in our local labor supply. The scholarship has a two part benefit. It provides funds for tuition, books and board and room during the learning years and a 12 month financial benefit should you decide to work for a Fremont area firm upon earning your degree.

Reference forms are included with the Application. If you would like to send a link for the reference forms to your referrer, they are provided as a separate document below as well.

Congratulations to the 2014 Recipients of the Hometown Support Scholarship

Linden Leopard & Bergan Branch of First State Bank & Trust

We look forward to opening our bank in school branches at Archbishop Bergan Elementary School and Linden Elementary School each fall. This is the fourth and fifth year, respectively, for these programs. The branches provide elementary students the opportunity to not only learn about savings and how banks operate, but to become savers themselves. We are building a community of economists in Fremont and want these young people to become savvy savers. The bank in school branches operate during the school year.

The account opened in school are only active at their respective school branches. Withdrawals are only allowed when the student leaves the school or graduates the elementary school. The Bergan bank is open to accept students' deposits every Tuesday morning at 8 a.m., while the Linden bank is open every Tuesday morning at 7:30am Each deposit must be at least one dollar. Students have their own ledgers to record their deposits. In lieu of interest, children receive incentives provided by First State Bank & Trust when they make deposits into their savings accounts - based on consistent savings and amount of savings.

The bank is staffed by students from each school. They are joined by a teller and marketing liaison from First State Bank & Trust Co.

Students must have a signed permission slip by a parent or guardian on file in order to participate.
