Congratulations to our 2014 Dollars for Scholars Winners!

Consumers Credit Union is pleased to announce the winners of our annual Dollars for Scholars Scholarship Program. The credit union has been helping student members achieve their dreams of attending college for over 20 years. More than 90 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 awarded 20 graduating seniors scholarships of $1,000 along with an iPad. Scholarship winners are not only exemplary students; they are excellent citizens in our community. Each applicant is evaluated with equal emphasis on academic achievement, community service, essay content, and letters of recommendation.
