Consumers Cooperative Association Scholarship Opportunities!

In the spirit of supporting and investing in our membership community, Consumers Cooperative Association (proud sponsor of Consumers Credit Union) is excited to announce they will award over $100,000 in scholarships in 2024 with expanded offerings to assist more members!  

Thirty (30) recipients will be selected from eligible applications submitted by high school seniors graduating in the class of 2024.  The selected recipients will each receive a scholarship worth $2,000.  Additionally, one (1) high school senior from the class of 2024 will receive the Bill Reidel Memorial Scholarship worth $10,000.  This scholarship will open from November 1, 2023 to January 14, 2024.

High School Scholarship Application

Last year, CCA opened scholarship opportunities to eligible members pursuing their undergraduate degrees.  CCA is pleased to announce the undergraduate program will continue again this year with expanded opportunities.  One (1) undergraduate student will be selected to receive the Gayhart Silvola $5,000 Honorary Scholarship, one (1) undergraduate student will be selected to receive the Dorotha Betke $5,000 Honorary Scholarship and fourteen (14) undergraduate students will be selected to each receive a scholarship worth $2,000.

Undergrad Scholarship Application

Finally, CCA will continue to support eligible members with student loan debt.  The scholarship seeks to alleviate the burden of student loan debt by helping members who have graduated and are in the workforce but still have student debt to pay.  This scholarship will open from October 15, 2023 to December 1, 2023. 

Student Loan Scholarship Application

Additional program details and eligibility will be available when the scholarships open.  

The scholarship funding comes from the one-time membership fee paid by members to join Consumers Cooperative Association and become eligible to join Consumers Credit Union.
