Each spring, the Ohio Credit Union Foundation offers Ohio undergraduate credit union members the opportunity to apply for one of three scholarships by creating an interactive 1 to 2½-minute video. This program aims to recognize and support talented credit union members in pursuing their educational goals by providing them with financial assistance. This year’s video topic was “How does your credit union support the local community?”

After careful consideration and an extensive review process, three exceptional individuals whose videos truly captured our attention and showcased their remarkable skills, creativity, and passion have been selected. It is with great pleasure that we announce the winners of the 2023 Annual Video Scholarship Program:

 

  • First Place, Caleb Wallis, member of Atomic Credit Union, Jackson OH:

We extend our heartfelt congratulations to all the winners for their outstanding achievements. Over the past twelve years, the Foundation has provided more than $101,500 in scholastic scholarships to help credit union members realize their dreams.

 

A special thank you to the Foundations generous sponsors and donors who make this scholarship program possible. Your unwavering support enables the Foundation to empower deserving individuals and make a meaningful difference in Ohio communities.
