The Franklin Savings Bank Scholarship Fund was established in 1994 to benefit area students in pursuit of higher education. We are pleased to have awarded 647 scholarships totaling $347,779 to local graduates since the fund’s inception. This scholarship fund represents the Bank’s commitment to helping families afford advanced educational opportunities for their children who are enrolled in college full-time. This is one way in which Franklin Savings Bank gives back to the communities we have proudly served since 1869.

The purpose of the Franklin Savings Bank Scholarship Fund is to provide scholarship assistance to select high school graduating seniors who reside in communities located within the Bank’s primary market area to include: Franklin High School, Gilford High School, Goffstown High School, Merrimack High School, Merrimack Valley High School, Newfound Regional High School and Winnisquam Regional High School.

Note: The application will be available in early February 2021. The FSB Scholarship application deadline is Friday, April 9, 2021. Please submit the application to your school guidance department on or before this date.
