2019 Scholarship Information
As a community-focused financial cooperative, Superior Choice Credit Union believes in and supports higher education by offering scholarships. These scholarships are to be representative of our membership and our Credit Union philosophy, “Not for profit, not for charity, but for service.”
Scholarship money will be paid to the student in his or her name as well as the name of the institution he or she will be attending.
Scholarship applicants will be judged on the written questions, school and community activities, and college plans. Letters of recommendation are not required; however, they will be accepted should the applicant have them. Financial need is not a sole consideration, but applicants who have all school expenses paid are ineligible.
Seven $500 Scholarships will be offered in 2019:
- One for a member of the Mellen School Credit Union
- One for a member of the Superior High School Credit Union
- Five for members of SCCU, regardless of location
Recipients/students must be members of Superior Choice Credit Union (SCCU) and not have any negative account balances or delinquent loans. The recipient must be a high school senior about to enter a post-secondary education program as a full-time student as determined by their respective schools.
Applicants must use the standard Student Application Form (SAF). Applications will not be returned and will become the property of SCCU. Click here to download a printable PDF Student Application Form.
A Scholarship Committee made up of SCCU staff will select recipients based on the applicants’ academic histories, goals, needs and extra-curricular activities. The decision of the Scholarship Selection Committee is final and not subject to review.
Your completed and signed SAF needs to be received by Friday, April 26, 2019, and can be mailed to:
