The GTE Foundation Scholarship Program awarded a total of $60,000 to 24 local high school and undergraduate students at an awards luncheon hosted by GTE Financial on August 6. Recipients of the $2,500 scholarship and their families, as well as GTE Financial’s Executive Management team, members of GTE Financial’s Board of Directors, and the Scholarship Judging Committee were in attendance. Over 500 students applied for the scholarship this year and GTE’s selection emphasis was on students’ community engagement, volunteerism and academic achievements.
The GTE Foundation Scholarship program accepts applications from graduating high school seniors and undergraduate college students who are GTE Financial members, and awards are made annually.
