In keeping with the spirit of the credit union philosophy of People Helping People, the Ohio Credit Union Foundation is offering three scholarships towards college tuition. The first-place winner will receive $5,000, second place $2,500, and third place a $1,000 scholarship. Students are encouraged to submit video applications Feb. 1 through April 29, 2022.

The three scholarships are available to student applicants who are at least a high school senior; a member of an Ohio-based credit union; and plan to pursue an undergraduate degree during the 2022-2023 school year.

To apply for a video scholarship, students create a 1 to 2 1/2-minute video addressing this year’s topic: “How can credit unions attract young members?”
