The Jerome B. Steinbach Scholarship is for students who are U.S. citizens by birth and will enroll for the fall term/semester. U.S. Bank employees, their children, and near relatives are not eligible. February 15 is the Early Bird Deadline. Error-free applications will be entered into a drawing for one of several $1,000 Early Bird scholarships. If a deadline falls on a weekend or holiday, that deadline will automatically be extended to 5:00 p.m. (PST) on the following business day.
