Scholarship Committee Call for 2013: Young Women's Leadership Award


Calling all Volunteers!

It's that time of year again. The application deadline for American Banker's Young Women's Leadership Award is rapidly approaching and we are soliciting your assistance in choosing this year's winners.

American Banker, in conjunction with the 25 Most Powerful Women in Banking, and in partnership with the High School for Leadership and Public Service in Manhattan, awards two young women with demonstrated outstanding leadership ability and potential scholarships of $5000 each to be used toward their college expenses. The young women must be graduating seniors accepted into a four-year college and the first in their family to pursue higher education. Through involvement in their community and/or school while maintaining academic success, these young women have shown that they not only have the tools to advance, but also that they have the ambition and drive to do so.

Last year's winners, Lauren Doyle and Nickeisha Wynter, are currently freshmen at Syracuse University and Buffalo State University.

Funding college today is a difficult and touchy subject. As part of our commitment to the community and to furthering successful women in the careers of their choice, we'd like to make the burden of a secondary education a little lighter. Scholarship applications are due February 1st, and we'll begin deliberations within the following few weeks after that. If you can spare the time and would like to assist in reviewing applications, please email me at tana.tymesen@sourcemedia or give me a call at 212. 803. 8306.

If you'd like to know more about our previous winners, check out this piece on Lauren Doyle and Nickeisha Wynter that ran on americanbanker.com/magazine in last year's 25 Most Powerful Women in Banking issue.

Big Winners and Losers for Banks on Election Night

Republicans won a sizable victory late Tuesday, retaking the Senate after losing it eight years ago. Banks, too, largely benefited, as an ally of the industry captured a Senate seat in West Virginia, two credit union allies fell and a key Democratic senator squeaked past. Here's how election night played out for banks.
