RBS Citizens Financial Group Is Looking For Students Who Are Good Citizens In Their Community For Its TruFit Good Citizen Scholarship Program

To help students supplement the cost of their college education and reward them for their volunteer efforts, RBS Citizens Financial Group (RBSCFG) today announced that it once again is offering the TruFit Good Citizen Scholarship program. Now in its third year, RBSCFG will award a total of $50,000 in college scholarships to students who demonstrate good citizenship through community volunteerism and leadership.

The application period for the TruFit Good Citizen Scholarship will begin on Monday, April 1 and run through Friday, April 19, 2013 or until 3,000 applications have been received, whichever occurs first. Winners will be announced this summer.

A total of 40 college scholarships will be awarded to U.S. residents who are 16-years of age or older and are attending or accepted to a federally accredited four-year college, university or graduate program and who have been active in community service. The school scholarships will be awarded this summer for the 2013-2014 academic year.

“As a company that helps students finance their college education, we created this scholarship program as a way to highlight and reward students who are devoting their time and effort into making their communities better places to live,” said Brendan Coughlin, President of Education Finance, RBS Citizens Financial Group. “We believe in contributing to the health and prosperity of our communities and look forward to seeing this year’s applicants and the contributions they are making in their local neighborhoods.”

RBSCFG will award 40 college scholarships totaling $50,000. One winner will receive $5,000; four winners each will receive $2,500; and 35 winners each will receive $1,000. Applicants are asked to submit an essay of no more than 250 words or a video up to 60 seconds long that describes their community volunteerism and leadership. They must also provide two references that are directly connected to their community involvement. For full details, rules and to apply, go to citizensbank.com/scholarship or charterone.com/scholarship.

As part of its commitment to students and making education more affordable, RBSCFG’s TruFit Student Loan product is available to students who live or attend school in the continental U.S. The TruFit Student Loan is a private student loan available with a fixed or variable rate and flexible repayment terms of five, 10 or 15 years, giving students the choice to select the option that best fits their needs. Borrowers receive interest rate reductions for automating their payments.

RBSCFG also offers online tips and tools to help students prepare and save for college as well as find information on how to apply for financial aid, federal and private student loans. The site includes a financing calendar with important dates and deadlines for securing funding and a student loan calculator to help students determine how much they will need to borrow to pay for college and how much they will owe once they graduate.
