PROVIDENCE – Citizens Financial Group is calling for applications for its TruFit Good Citizen Scholarship program, which offers scholarships up to $7,500 to students whose volunteer efforts have made a difference in their communities.

The program is open to high school seniors and college students attending or planning to attend a federally accredited four-year college.

“We created this scholarship program as a way to reward those students who have invested their time and energy in making their communities better places to live,” said Brad Conner, vice chairman of consumer lending at CFG. “As a bank that provides student loans to thousands of students across the country every year and whose colleagues have made community service one of our core values, we are excited by this opportunity to offer college scholarships to students who share our commitment to local communities.”

Twenty scholarships totaling $50,000 will be awarded to students who reside in or plan to attend college in CFG’s 12-state footprint. One winner will receive $7,500; four winners each will receive $5,000; and 15 winners each will receive $1,500.

Applicants are asked to write an essay of no more than 500 words or to tape a 90-second video explaining the responsibility and leadership skills they have exhibited through their community service experience.

For full details and to apply, go to www.citizensbank.com/scholarship or www.charterone.com/scholarship. The application deadline is Sept. 16 and winners will be announced in November 2011.
