The Credit Union Foundation MD|DC college scholarship program makes it easy for you to help your college-bound members meet their tuition costs while strengthening your bond with those members.

The scholarship features three application categories – essay, photo, & video. The 2019 topic for essay applicants is: “How can your credit union help you become financially independent?” This year’s video topic: “Create a 60-second video showing how your credit union helps you achieve your financial goals.”

Photographers are invited to capture an original photograph that represents the theme, “Dream big” College or trade school-bound members of any credit union based in Maryland or D.C. or other credit unions affiliated with the MD|DC CUA are eligible. The scholarship program is completely turnkey and free.

After the March 31, 2019 deadline credit unions with member applicants receive a report noting who entered and their standing so they may reach out to those members who may fall just shy of the scholarship award levels. “Many credit unions chose to reward members who apply by providing gift cards or a letter of support, even if they don’t place among the top contenders,” added Caprio. “It’s a unique way of letting your young members know you care.”
