The J. Robert Young scholarship was established in 2008 by Alpine Bank employees and an executive committee to honor bank chairman, J. Robert (Bob) Young, on the bank's 35th anniversary. The scholarship is designated for graduates of public high schools in areas served by Alpine Bank who have demonstrated good academic performance and are pursuing a business degree.
The scholarships are administered through Western Colorado Community Foundation, a non-profit public charity whose mission is to promote charitable giving, build and manage charitable endowment funds for community good, and provide grants, scholarships and other resources to benefit the residents and communities of western Colorado.
