The credit union offers an annual scholarship program every January to promote post-secondary education among our membership. The success of our members’ future careers is important to us, and we look forward to assisting three of our members each year with this monetary award.
Three $1000 scholarships will be awarded to the top 3 candidates based on their response to the follow essay question:
