SCHOLARSHIPS

We want to give you your best chance at success. Our scholarship program is for students who are committed to their community, technical discipline, and professional development. In addition to receiving financial assistance to support your education, if you win a McElhanney scholarship, you get to interview for a summer co-op position at your local branch. These opportunities often lead to full-time careers with us!

Scholarship applications are typically released in the Fall. Check back in Fall 2021 to apply.
