The Joan R. Herschede Profiles in Courage Scholarship honors the legacy of Mrs. Herschede, the first female Board of Director at Fifth Third Bank and her philanthropic commitment to the Cincinnati community.
In the spirit of giving back and empowering women, Fifth Third is pleased to establish this scholarship in recognition of our friend and supporter.
The recipient of the Joan R. Herschede Profiles in Courage Scholarship will be an African-American female student from the University of Cincinnati. In addition to demonstrating a financial need, the scholarship recipient will be an example of a Profile in Courage in her own right, someone who has overcome challenges and met them head on and won.
Finally, the student should be in good standing and have a minimum grade point average of 3.0. Applications are due Wednesday, December 22, 2010.
Applications can be returned to the Office of Ethnic Programs & Services or to the African American Cultural & Resource Center.
