The Hester Scholarship is open to Georgia high school seniors who will be entering a Georgia college, university or trade school (two year program or more). The scholarship is named for the late Jan Hester, daughter of Lalia and the late Julian Hester, long-time CEO of Community Bankers Association. In addition to supporting community banking, this scholarship fund is an opportunity to pass on the positive qualities both Jan & Julian Hester exemplified to further the development of tomorrow’s generations.

As in the past eleven years, CBA will award $1,000 scholarships to four (4) of this year’s candidates of the Julian & Jan Hester Memorial Scholarship. The applications must be submitted to the Association through a CBA member community bank.  To obtain a listing of member community banks in your area, please contact LindsayGreene.
