Forty-two students receive grants for 2019-2020

Everence® is honoring 42 students with scholarships for the 2019-2020 academic year. 

More than 220 students from across the country applied for scholarships – a benefit of being an Everence member – for the coming school year. The number of applications topped last year’s total by more than 60. Everence also increased the amounts of the scholarships this year.

Recipients were chosen based on participation and leadership in school-related activities and community activities, along with responses to an essay question.

 “Everence appreciates these hard-working students and wants to help them earn their college degrees,” said Kenda Mishler, Member Benefits Manager. “Attending college not only helps prepare students for their careers, but encourages learning and refining skills that will help them in all phases of their lives."
