We are pleased to announce that we will be offering scholarships to our members. Whether they are new to college, or returning, students have the opportunity to apply for scholarships that will assist them in furthering their education. The application deadline is April 1, 2016, and the recipients will be announced in May, 2016.
The recipients are selected based on their excellence in academics and outstanding community service, and each student is rewarded with a $1,000 scholarship to a college or university of their choice. The recipients of 2015 selected schools such as Lansing Community College, University of Michigan, Bethel College, Michigan State University, and Rochester College. Students interested in applying can go to the Michigan Community Credit Union website for the video application guidelines.
Our Board of Directors, management, and staff believe in strong educational roots. In that regard, the Michigan Community Credit Union College Scholarships were developed to help enthusiastic students in the area realize their career goals. “One of our core values is education, and we are proud to support local students in the community,” said Tina Hamilton, CEO. Michigan Community Credit Union has had the honor of providing scholarships to local students for numerous years, and we are delighted to continue the program.
