DUBOIS, Pa. — CBT Bank of Clearfield has made an additional gift of $5,000 to CBT Scholarship at Penn State DuBois. The bank has pledged to make annual contributions to the fund, which will be distributed in its entirety to qualifying students each year.
This scholarship provides recognition and financial assistance to outstanding undergraduate students enrolled or planning to enroll at Penn State DuBois who have superior academic records and a need for funds to help cover their college expenses. In an effort to support those in CBT's immediate area, students from Bedford, Blair, Centre, Clearfield or Huntingdon Counties will be given first preference.
CBT has supported Penn State DuBois for more than 30 years, making contributions totaling over $90,000 in support of scholarships, as well as facility projects, including the construction of the DuBois Educational Foundation Building.
Each year, more than $400,000 in scholarship dollars is awarded to Penn State DuBois students through over 50 individual scholarship funds. The scholarships established through the generosity of donors, with the assistance of the campus’ Office of Development, help to assure an affordable and accessible education remains in reach for area students.
