Consumers Cooperative Association Scholarships Coming Soon!
In the spirit of supporting and investing in our membership community, Consumers Cooperative Association (proud sponsor of Consumers Credit Union) is happy to announce some exciting changes to our scholarship offering.
Consumers Cooperative Association will award Thirty-three (33) scholarships totaling $80,000 in 2023. Thirty (30) of the selected high school seniors graduating in the class of 2023 will each be awarded a scholarship worth $2,000. One (1) high school senior (graduating in the class of 2023) will be selected to receive the Bill Reidel Memorial Scholarship worth $10,000.
CCA is pleased to announce two (2) NEW scholarship opportunities. The first opportunity is open to eligible members pursuing their undergraduate degree. One (1) student will be selected to receive the Gayhart Silvola $5,000 Honorary Scholarship, and one (1) student will be selected to receive the Dorotha Betke $5,000 Honorary Scholarship. The second scholarship opportunity CCA is offering is 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.
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.
