2014 Scholarship Details 

Hey Students!

Did you know the Minnesota Family Involvement Council has $10,000 in scholarships available for Minnesota credit union members? To be eligible, the applicant must be a student pursuing post high school education in the 2014/2015 school year (fall and spring semester) and must be a member of a credit union headquartered in Minnesota that is affiliated with the Minnesota Credit Union Network. (Hey, that's us!)

The FIC is offering two $1,000 scholarships and sixteen $500 scholarships to 18 credit union members throughout Minnesota. Any individual attending a college or university, graduate or law school, 2- or 4-year program or community or technical college in the fall of 2014/spring 2015 is eligible.

Those interested in applying need to complete a one-page application form and submit a typed essay (up to 500 words in length) answering the question, “The average age of credit union members in Minnesota is 47 years old. In order to be sustainable, credit unions need to serve younger generations, as well.  What can credit unions do to attract and engage young adult consumers?”

Applicants are encouraged to research the topic using any sources available. The scholarship deadline is Tuesday, February 1, 2014. The 18 scholarship recipients will be selected and announced in the spring of 2014.
