GSB Ann Kleist Scholarship
Ann Kleist, former GSB vice president and CFO, retired in 2012 after 37 years of service to GSB. This scholarship honors not only Ann's contributions to the school, but her dedication to community service and volunteerism. The banker selected for this award will not only be active in banking, but also engaged in giving back to his or her community through volunteerism. This scholarship is available in the amount of $1,500.00 for each year of the student's attendance (approximately 1/3 of the annual tuition fees) for a total value of $4,500. If you have additional questions, contact Joan Papke at 608-243-1945.
At-Large GSB Outstanding Leader Scholarship
This scholarship is awarded through the Prochnow Educational Foundation directly, rather than through a state association. This is an at-large scholarship ... thus bankers from any state or country entering their Freshman year at GSB are eligible to apply. Two scholarships will be awarded annually, and selection will be based on leadership experience and potential as well as banking industry involvement. The At-Large Scholarship pays $1,500 (approx. one-third) of the annual tuition for each of three GSB sessions, for a total value $4,500. If you have additional questions, contact Becky Patterson at 800-755-6440.

This scholarship, which is funded by the AMBA, honors Andy’s passions for and contributions to military banking and banking education. Bankers eligible for this scholarship must be serving or have served honorably as an active duty, Reserve, or National Guard member of one of the Armed Services of the United States. Bankers who are military spouses or spouses of veterans are also eligible to apply. This scholarship is available in the amount of $1,500 for each year of the student’s attendance (approximately 1/3 of the annual tuition fees) for a total value of $4,500.
At-Large GSB Human Resource Management School Scholarship
In addition to the Human Resource Management School Scholarships available through GSB's sponsoring state bankers associations, the Prochnow Foundation also offers an "at large" HR Management School scholarship that is available to bankers from any state or country.
