Regions Bank is joining forces with the Miami Dade College Foundation to provide scholarship opportunities for students who attend Miami Dade College and need assistance with continuing their education.
Miami Dade College, with more than 165,000 students, is the largest institution of higher education in the country. Eight campuses in Miami-Dade County, Florida, offer more than 300 educational pathways to a career. Sixty-five percent of students are from low-income households, and 43 percent live below the federal poverty line. Scholarship support is critical to help students continue their education.
“Regions Bank is committed to supporting projects and initiatives that boost educational opportunities for everyone,” said Chris Cruzpino, Regions’ Miami-Dade Market Executive. “Miami Dade College is a force multiplier in our community, helping students from all walks of life prepare for a career. As a proud alumna of the school, I am pleased that Regions is supporting students with these valuable scholarships. Their success will support the long-term growth and development of South Florida.”
We are grateful to Regions for investing in the communities they serve … Their support of scholarships at Miami Dade College has the power to change the lives of our students, their families and our community.
