Foundation Announces 2017

Could you use help with college or trade school tuition? Are you a member of a Maryland or District of Columbia-based credit union and entering your freshman through senior year of college or trade school?

The $12,000 Credit Union College Scholarship Program is underway now! Eligible credit union members may apply for one of ten $1,000 essay-based scholarships, one $1,000 video-based scholarship, and/or one $1,000 photo-based scholarship.  And yes, eligible members may apply in all three categories!

Deadline for applications is March 31, 2017. Awards will be announced in May 2017.

This year’s essay topic is:
As a credit union member, explain why someone should choose a credit union as their primary financial institution over alternative service providers, such as for-profit banks.

This year’s video topic is:
Create a 60-second advertisement targeted specifically at a younger viewer (under the age of 30) that highlights the benefits of credit union membership.

This year’s photo theme is the credit union core value, “Respectful.”
