Giving Back to Our Members: 20 Students Earn Scholarships from Consumers Credit Union

Dollars for ScholarsWe are pleased to announce the winners of our annual Dollars for Scholars Scholarship Program. Consumers Credit Union has been helping student members achieve their dreams of attending college for over 20 years. More than 70 scholarships have been awarded since the program’s inception. The Dollars for Scholars program is funded by staff on “Casual for a Cause” Fridays, as well as from coin machine revenue.

This year, Consumers is awarding 20 graduating seniors scholarships of $500 along with an iPad. Scholarship winners are not only exemplary students; they are also excellent citizens in our community. Each applicant is evaluated with equal emphasis on academic achievement, community service, essay content, and letters of recommendation.

Courtney Rus, co-chair of the Dollars for Scholars Committee, says, “Dollars for Scholars is a great way for Consumers Credit Union to be involved with the development and education of our future leaders and give back to our student members.”
