The Ron & Vanessa Banner Future Community Leaders Scholarship

The B3 Foundation’s Ron & Vanessa Banner Scholars Program is dedicated to empowering student leaders to and through college. The Future Community Leaders Scholarship is the first official scholarship offered under the Scholars Program, and focuses on identifying students who are committed to further developing as local community leaders in their chosen field in college and beyond. 

The program is the bedrock of B3’s mission to foster the next generation of student leaders and provide them with the quality education necessary to create change. Winners of the scholarship will receive $10,000 annually for four years that will go towards college tuition and expenses and will be paired with a mentor in the field of their choosing who will guide and coach them throughout their college experience.


Applicants must be high school seniors, have a current 3.0 or above point average and must be involved in community service. A full list of criteria and eligibility requirements as well as a guide through the application process can be found at:
