Virginia Bankers Association Bank Day Scholarships
The third Tuesday in March was declared Bank Day by the Virginia General Assembly in 1991. On this day, high school seniors spend a day in banks across the Commonwealth shadowing a banker in their daily duties. The purpose of this experience is for the students to learn about banking, financial services, and the vital role banks play in their communities.
From their experience, the students are required to write an essay on the following topic: "What did you learn on Bank Day that will help you manage your financial future AND what did you learn about how banks support their communities?"
