We began our scholarship program in 1999 and have awarded $592,000 to students in our community throughout the years.

This year, ten high school seniors were awarded $2,000 from the Arbor Financial Scholarship based in large part upon an essay they submitted for the topic, "Consider a pivotal moment from your high school journey and describe how it has influenced your personal growth and readiness for the next phase of your life."
