Each year, Bluestone Bank partners with local schools to award outstanding and deserving students with scholarships
RAYNHAM, Mass., July 6, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Bluestone Bank is proud to announce that with the completion of its 2022 scholarships awards, over $500,000 has been donated through their Scholarship Program. As a way to invest back into its community, Bluestone Bank partners with local schools each year and awards scholarships to graduating high school seniors.
This program provides support for those graduating seniors who are continuing their education at an accredited institution of higher learning or continuing their career in a Trade.

"Our Scholarship Program is just one of the ways we are able to invest back into our community. We view Bluestone Bank as a resource to community members in all stages of life and strive to be their banking partner every step of the way. Playing a small part in these graduating seniors’ journey is so rewarding and we are excited to celebrate their future successes," said Bluestone Bank President, Meg McIsaac.
