The first is a scholarship for high school seniors with a projected graduation date of 2012. That competition will award a total of $3,750. The first-place prize is $1,500; second place is $1,000; third place is $750; and fourth place is $500.
The second program is a post-high school scholarship, which is open to any person who is entering or attending an accredited undergraduate, graduate or vocational program. Two $1,000 scholarships will be awarded in this category.
Applicants must complete an entry form found on the ICUF website and are required to answer a question in 500 words or less. Essay questions try to encourage learning about the credit union movement and its mission.
