GSB Ann Kleist Scholarship

Ann Kleist, former GSB vice president and CFO, retired in 2012 after 37 years of service to GSB. This scholarship honors not only Ann's contributions to the school, but her dedication to community service and volunteerism. The banker selected for this award will not only be active in banking, but also engaged in giving back to his or her community through volunteerism. This scholarship is available in the amount of $1,300.00 for each year of the student's attendance (approximately 1/3 of the annual tuition fees) for a total value of $3,900. An application is available here. If you have additional questions, contact Becky Patterson at 800-755-6440.

At-Large GSB Outstanding Leader Scholarship

This scholarship is awarded through the Prochnow Educational Foundation directly, rather than through a state association. This is an at-large scholarship ... thus bankers from any state or country entering their Freshman year at GSB are eligible to apply. Two scholarships will be awarded annually, and selection will be based on leadership experience and potential as well as banking industry involvement. The At-Large Scholarship pays $1,300 (approx. one-third) of the annual tuition for each of three GSB sessions, for a total value $3,900. An application is available here. If you have additional questions, contact Becky Patterson at 800-755-6440.

At-Large GSB Human Resource Management School Scholarship

In addition to the Human Resource Management School Scholarships available through GSB's sponsoring state bankers associations, the Prochnow Foundation also offers an "at large" HR Management School scholarship that is available to bankers from any state or country. The scholarship pays $925 (approximately one-third) of the total tuition for the one-week school. An application is available here. If you have additional questions, contact Becky Patterson at 800-755-6440.
