Founders' Scholarship

Cornerstone CU is proud to continue the tradition of awarding Founders' Scholarships to local area students who have demonstrated leadership and dedication throughout their high school years with a commitment to furthering their education and community involvement. 

We will be awarding three (3) $4,000 scholarships in 2018 totalling $12,000*. Each scholarship grant will be disbursed over four years.

As part of our ongoing effort to invest in our future leaders, the Founders' Scholarship program for graduating seniors is designed to encourage and promote degree completion and to reinforce the rewards for increased responsibility.

Important Information

To apply for the 2018 scholarship, the applicant (student) must have a credit union membership account in which his/her name is primary on the account. Students must open a membership account before we accept their Scholarship application, which must be postmarked by February 28, 2018. 

Note to parents:  If you have not opened a CCU membership account for your children, do so now and help them get ready for the financial responsibilities of college life--having a child as a joint account on a parent’s account does not qualify.

Scholarship Application

Apply by downloading an application here. Complete and mail or drop off at any of our three branch locations in Freeport, Sterling or South Beloit. Entries MUST BE POSTMARKED by February 28, 2018.
*Scholarships awarded in graduated payments over four academic years. Scholarship disbursement and award criteria are included in the application.
