Busey Bank Bridge Scholarship Recipients Announced

As students headed off to school this fall, nine of them were given a helping hand thanks to the Busey Bank Bridge Scholarship fund.

Busey is pleased to announce this year’s scholarship recipients include Joseph Awinongya, Nina Fedorko, Olivia Fedorko, Cheyenne Grady, Virgie Jones, Chavier Marshall, Maleah Perry, Evan Ortiz and Paul Ruchal.

Available in select counties across our footprint in Illinois, Missouri, Florida and Indiana, the Busey Bank Bridge Scholarship supports the academic endeavors of low-to-moderate income students with a desire to continue their higher education. The $2,500 scholarship is earmarked for tuition, fees, books and/or supplies. After meeting eligibility requirements and submitting required documentation, applications were carefully considered and reviewed by a Busey-appointed committee.

While applications are no longer being accepted in 2022, the opportunity will be available again next year for eligible students. To learn more about the Busey Bank Bridge Scholarship, visit busey.com/scholarship.

Team Busey wishes all the recipients the best of the luck as they pursue their dreams for the future.
