The Founders’ Scholarship is back!
Apply Today.

High school seniors, take note! Graduation is just around the corner. Imagine what a relief it would be to have assistance with your tuition. Now is the time to apply for a scholarship for the 2017 school year.

Cornerstone CU is proud to again offer its coveted Founders’ Scholarship to three (3) deserving high school seniors. Each scholarship grant is for $5,000 to be disbursed over four years.

Important Information

To apply for a scholarship, the applicant (student) must have a credit union membership account in which his/her name is primary on the account. Students must have this account open 30 days prior to the Scholarship application deadline, which is February 28, 2017. This means the student must have a CCU membership savings account opened no later than January 30, 2017.

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.

How to Apply

For more information, download the 2017 Scholarship Application, complete and mail or bring to any Cornerstone CU Service Center. Entries must be postmarked no later than February 28, 2017.
