As part of that mission, and in recognition of the importance of a higher education, we offer a $5,000 scholarship each year. It's available to those with a client relationship with Citizens State Bank - the applicant, a relative, or guardian. We're delighted to reward the hard work and determination of those who might shape the communities we serve.
