The Association of Military Banks of America (AMBA) has established a scholarship to the Graduate School of Banking at the University of Wisconsin-Madison to honor Raleigh A. “Andy” Trovillion. Trovillion, a long-time former GSB faculty member and Association of Military Banks of America (AMBA) board chairman, passed away in 2019 after a distinguished career in banking.
“AMBA is honored to sponsor this scholarship that combines Andy’s passions for banking and support of our nation’s military. As a long-time AMBA director and past chairman, he energized us to do what we could to ensure military families received the financial education, products, and services they earned through their service and sacrifice. We miss him dearly and believe he would be humbled by this legacy. Through this scholarship in his name, we hope to enable and inspire future generations of veterans and military spouses who have chosen banking as their profession to continue Andy’s work,” said Maj. Gen. (Ret.) Steven J. Lepper, president and CEO, Association of Military Banks of America (AMBA).
“We’re proud and pleased that AMBA chose to honor Andy’s legacy by supporting banker education at GSB Wisconsin. This scholarship will encourage the bankers he cared so much about taking advantage of the quality education that Andy himself worked hard to provide as a long-time member of our faculty,” added Kirby Davidson, GSB president and CEO.
Bankers eligible for this scholarship must be serving or have served honorably as an active duty, Reserve, or National Guard member of one of the Armed Services of the United States. Bankers who are military spouses or spouses of veterans are also eligible to apply. This scholarship is available in the amount of $1,500 for each year of the student’s attendance (approximately 1/3 of the annual tuition fees) for a total value of $4,500.
