Youth Scholarship

The credit union seeks to reinforce good savings habits in all of its members, but especially in young members, which is why the Youth Scholarship program was created. To encourage children to save, for every $5.00 deposited into an eligible account, a ticket is automatically generated for the drawing at our Annual Meeting.

Two $1,000 scholarships will be awarded and one $2,000 scholarship are awarded each year.

Quarterly Youth Scholarships

For the remaining year, we continue our scholarship awards by providing addition chances to win. Anyone under 18 years of age may be eligible for our Quarterly Youth Scholarship. Once a quarter with a deposit of $25 or more they are automatically entered for a $1,000.00 scholarship for the remaining summer, fall, and winter seasons.

Memorial Scholarships

The Memorial Scholarship was created to honor deceased credit union volunteers and staff who served for 15 years or more.

To qualify for this scholarship, applicants must be a graduating high school senior and must complete an application, stating why they wish to pursue a higher education. One $2,000 Memorial Scholarship is awarded each year at our Annual Meeting.
