Credit Union West announces five academic scholarships in 2018

Five high school graduates from Maricopa and Yavapai counties will earn $1,000 to use for college.

GLENDALE, AZ (January 19, 2018) — As a local financial leader, Credit Union West is committed to supporting Maricopa and Yavapai counties through programs that benefit the community-at-large. In 2018, the credit union is offering $5,000 in scholarships to graduating high school seniors. These five $1,000 awards will allow local high school graduates to offset the cost of studying at a four-year college, community college or trade school.

This year, two new $1,000 scholarships are reserved for students who participated in their school’s Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (JROTC). The remaining three awards are open to all local graduates who meet the scholarship requirements.

“We are committed to advancing the economic strength of Maricopa and Yavapai counties,” said Bob MacGregor, Credit Union West’s President and CEO. “These scholarships help local students gain the knowledge and skills needed to fill local jobs and become contributing members of their communities.”

Maricopa and Yavapai County students who graduate in 2018 and plan to attend college or trade school in the fall can apply for a Credit Union West scholarship from January 1 to March 30, 2018. The application form and rules can be found online. Scholarship winners will be announced by May 1, 2018.
