Opelika Observer

High school seniors across Central and East Alabama can now apply for one of 10 $5,000 scholarships available through the annual MAX4Kids Foundation Scholarship Program. The scholarships’ purpose is to help students who face cost-prohibitive challenges in continuing their education beyond high school. The application process runs from now until Feb. 14, 2020.
“At MAX, we hope this scholarship helps students in our footprint to further their education and build a foundation for success,” said Vice President of Mortgage Services at MAX and MAX4Kids Foundation President Kenneth Hill. “We believe investing in local students is also investing in the future of the communities we serve.”
High school seniors in Central and East Alabama can apply by visiting or picking up an application at any MAX location.
The applying student must be or become a MAX customer by Nov. 1 in order to be eligible for the scholarship. The student should also be a spring 2020 graduate of a Central or East Alabama high school with at least a cumulative 2.75 GPA and must plan to attend a trade school, college or university in the state of Alabama.
The MAX4Kids Foundation is a nonprofit organization created in 2001 by MAX team members as a way to give back to the community.
To date, the foundation has donated more than $1.3 million to the MAX4Kids Scholarship Program and local children’s charities in Central and East Alabama.
