2018 scholarship

2018 Scholarship Application

In addition to financial aid, scholarships can greatly help you to pay for your post-secondary education or graduate degree! There are many different scholarships available, but we believe in giving back to our members, which is why we will be giving away one $1,000 scholarship in 2018! The task is pretty simple, and we are looking forward to receiving the applications.

In the past, Winslow Community Federal Credit Union has granted two, $500 scholarships, but this year we thought that one $1,000 scholarship would be more helpful. This $1,000 scholarship is eligible for someone who is looking to pursue a post-secondary education or graduate degree.
