Taking the next step in your education is exciting, and a big deal! We’d love to help. At Summit we believe in supporting and furthering the education of members in our community, which is why every year we award three Board of Directors Scholarships as well as host Project Teen Money for local high school students.

Each year, eight students from East, La Follette, Memorial and West high schools in Madison are selected to compete for a $2,500 grand prize scholarship or one of five $500 scholarships.
