Tell Regions Bank About an African-American Who Inspires You & You Could Win a $3,500 or $5,000 Scholarship

This is a sponsored feature. All opinions are 100% our own.

Regions Bank is committed to diversity, inclusion and financial education.   In honor of Black History Month, Regions will offer scholarships to high school and college students through the Regions Riding Forward® Scholarship Essay Contest. High school seniors can enter for an opportunity to win a $5,000 scholarship.


And Regions definitely didn’t forget about you, collegiettes! College students in their freshman, sophomore or junior year can enter for an opportunity to win a $3,500 scholarship.



In 2015, Regions surpassed more than $500,000 in total scholarships awarded since the program’s inception in 2012. Again this year, Regions is honored to celebrate African-American history and support education through its online resources and financial contributions.


High school seniors—living in states with Regions branches and who will attend college during the 2016-2017 academic school year—are eligible to enter. Additionally, college students in their freshman, sophomore or junior year—who currently attend college in or permanently reside in states with Regions branches—also have the opportunity to apply.


It’s as simple as entering and writing an essay—the length of which should be 500 words or less. Celebrate Black History Month by telling Regions about an African-American who has inspired and motivated you. Entries will be accepted Jan.18 through Feb. 25.


So, what are you waiting for? Let your voice be heard and you could win a scholarship in the process. Visit to enter and to obtain additional Contest information, including eligibility requirements and full Official Rules.
