CBT Bank, a division of Riverview Bank, has established an Open Doors Scholarship at Penn State DuBois. Taking advantage of this unprecedented 2:1 matching opportunity, CBT Bank has pledged $30,000 to create the scholarship, which will be matched with $60,000 from Penn State, creating a $90,000 endowment.

The Open Doors Scholarship Program runs in its current form through June 30, offering the 2:1 match to donors who make a minimum $30,000 pledge, payable over five years, to establish a scholarship. Donors can also choose to donate any amount above $30,000, which the University will continue to match at 2:1.

CBT Bank 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, the bank contributes to the CBT Bank Scholarship at Penn State DuBois, which 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.
