20 scholarships of $1,000 and an iPad to be awarded to graduating seniors in 2014
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. In 2014, Consumers will award 20 scholarships of $1,000 and an iPad to members of the credit union who are graduating high school seniors.
Consumers believes strongly in contributing to the well-being of its membership by supporting student members as they further their education. The Dollars for Scholars program is funded by staff donations on “Casual for a Cause” Fridays, as well as from coin machine revenue.
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.”
Applications are evaluated on academic achievement, community service, and essay content. The applicant must be an active member of Consumers Credit Union and a full-time high school senior with a GPA of 3.0 or higher and an ACT score of 23 or higher.
Last year’s winners represented thirteen local high schools from throughout West Michigan.
