Dybala wins scholarship

HAMBURG — The First Niagara Foundation and GenHERation have named Allie Dybala, a junior at Immaculata Academy in Hamburg, the winner of the First Niagara Challenge $250 scholarship.

Dybala submitted the proposal for a financial literacy campaign in the Western New York community. She will be working with the GenHERation team in the coming months to implement her project.

She was selected as winner of the scholarship after writing about the importance of financial literacy education and her plans to pursue a career in finance. In addition to the scholarship, Dybala will be working with First Niagara’s Jeanne Stegmeier, who will serve as a professional mentor.

“I am thrilled to be working with Allie to help her implement her proposal and plan for her own career in finance,” said Stegmeier, First Niagara Hamburg Branch Manager.

“At First Niagara, we know mentors can make a world of difference. I am looking forward to helping Allie continue to do great things in our community.”

GenHERation is a female empowerment startup for millennial girls that was founded by Katlyn Grasso, a junior at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. GenHERation provides girls the opportunity to work with national corporations and not for profit organizations to implement their own advocacy campaigns to address community issues.

Currently, GenHERation is running a pilot program with more than 200 girls in the Northeast and will be expanding nationally, this summer.
