2020 Scholarship Applications
Eaton Family Credit Union and several partners are working to combat the high costs of post-secondary education by offering several scholarships to our Members and their family members. We are very proud to distribute the following college scholarship applications:
Eaton Family Credit Union
$14,000 in scholarship money will be provided to Members who are seniors graduating high school in 2020.
- Two scholarships of $5,000 each will be available for students planning to attend a 4-year college or university.
- Two scholarships of $2,000 each will be available to students planning to attend a 2-year program at a community college.
Applicants can be pursuing any major field of study and must be a Member in good standing to be considered.
Scholarship guidelines are available here.
Applications are available upon request from each branch as well as online, here.
Ohio Credit Union Foundation
The Ohio Credit Union Foundation believes in lifting up our Ohio student credit union members who are moving on to higher education through its annual video scholarship. Students can submit a short video for the chance to win one of three scholarships toward college tuition.
Applications are being accepted now through Friday, May 1, 2020.
To qualify for the video scholarship, student applicants must:
- be at least a high school senior;
- be a member of an Ohio-based credit union; and
- plan to pursue an undergraduate degree during the 2020-2021 school year.
Applicants must create a 1 to 2½-minute video addressing this year’s request:
“Imagine you are now running your credit union, and you need to promote the benefits of membership. Create a 1 to 2.5-minute commercial to entice community members to join your credit union.”
Video entries can be edgy, funny, bold, simple, serious – or anything in between. Entries will be judged on accuracy of information presented, effectiveness in addressing the scholarship question and originality.
Video entries must be submitted online via the Foundation’s website by 11:59:59 p.m. EDT Friday, May 1, 2020.
Scholarship winners will be announced Friday, May 22, 2020.
Please check back occasionally throughout the Spring because we’ll be sharing additional applications from various partners who make scholarships available to our Members.
