Applicants sought for college scholarships

Applications will be accepted through March 15 for college scholarships available to graduates of public high schools in communities served by Alpine Bank.

Two $1,000, renewable scholarships are awarded each year under a program named for J. Robert Young, chairman of Alpine Bank. Recipients must have a grade point average of 2.75 or better and seek a business-related degree at a Colorado college. Scholarships are awarded on the basis of financial need and administered by the Western Colorado Community Foundation.

Applications are available from Alpine Bank locations or online at www.alpinebank.com or www.wc-cf.org
