MINNEAPOLIS -- September 5, 2013
Allianz Life Insurance Company of North America (Allianz Life) announced it
has awarded $30,000 in scholarships to local students for post-secondary
educational costs through its Legacy Scholarship Program. Eight $3,000
scholarships were given to family members of Allianz Life employees living in
the Twin Cities. Additionally, two $3,000 scholarships were awarded to the
children of two Allianz Life employees living in Georgia.
“The Legacy Scholarships are a great way to recognize and award students that
are doing great things in both the classroom and the community,” said Allianz
Life President and CEO Walter White. “By rewarding these young adults who
think of others and value their education, we will strengthen our communities
and build a bright future.”
Students received the scholarships because they reflect the company’s core
values of caring and service to others. The 10 scholarships were based on
academic performance and community service participation in areas such as
social welfare and education.
