M&T Bank Scholarship Supports Local Transfer Students Who Study Business at Frostburg State University
Thanks to the generosity of M&T Bank, area community college students have a new reason to stay in the area and pursue bachelor’s degrees in business at Frostburg State University.
The M&T Bank Scholarship benefits students enrolled full time in Frostburg’s College of Business who transferred to FSU from Allegany College of Maryland or Garrett College. Applicants must be legal residents of the following counties: Allegany and Garrett counties in Maryland; Mineral, Hampshire, Grant and Preston counties in West Virginia; or Bedford and Somerset counties in Pennsylvania. They must have an overall grade point average of at least 3.0 and have demonstrated financial need.
“We are grateful that M&T Bank is creating this path of opportunity for local students to pursue their business degrees at Frostburg’s internationally accredited College of Business,” said Dr. Rosemary M. Thomas, FSU vice president for University Advancement and executive director of the FSU Foundation. “This not only helps students afford a quality education, but it also lets them know someone believes in their potential and shows them the value of giving back to their communities.”
“M&T Bank is truly committed to the communities in which it serves,” said Ashley Sowers, a 2002 FSU graduate and the bank’s administrative vice president/retail regional manager. “As a graduate of the Business Administration department at FSU, I am honored to know we will continue to give the gift of education. In addition to myself, many of my M&T Bank co-workers are also graduates of FSU. We know the value that FSU can bring a student, and it creates a tremendous foundation for someone to launch into a professional career.”
