Consumers Credit Union’s Dollars for Scholars Scholarship Program 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.
DyLan R. was a senior in high school when he received a Dollars for Scholars scholarship. He graduated from Western Michigan University this past winter. DyLan tells us, “The scholarship came at a time when we didn’t exactly have money to send me off to college, because my dad had suffered a heart attack. It really helped with making sure that I could afford school.”
With the costs of higher education increasing every year, every bit of financial support helps. According to DyLan, Dollars for Scholars provided more than that. “I’m thankful for the trust Consumers put into me that really pushed me to go on,” he says. “Because I was awarded the scholarship, I had more of a sense of responsibility to go on to school to use that properly.”
We’re proud to offer that support to our young members as they further their education. The tradition continues this year, as we will be awarding 20 scholarships of $1,000 and an iPad to graduating high school seniors who are Consumers Credit Union members.
