ECCU to award $24,000 in scholarships to high school seniors

Scholarships, no matter the amount, make such a huge and positive impact in students’ lives.

KALAMAZOO, MI (January 13, 2016) — For some, scholarships can make or break a student’s ability to attend college. Not everyone qualifies for student loans, grants, or academically-superior awards, and it’s often the local scholarships that help bridge the gap and make college a reality.

ECCU’s commitment to education has resulted in awarding $364,000 to graduating high school seniors since its Scholarship Program’s inception in 1999. We are now accepting applications for our 2016 Scholarship Program which will award $24,000 to eighteen area college-bound students.

“While ECCU scholarships are based partly on academic achievement, they’re not just awarded to 4.0 students,” explains Tina Mason, ECCU Marketing Director. “We take a look at the student’s bigger academic picture, such as the kind of courses they took – were they challenging? – and how well they seemed to balance school priorities with part-time work or volunteering.”

A minimum 3.0 GPA is required to be eligible for an ECCU scholarship. For complete qualifications, and to download a scholarship application, visit the Scholarship Program page at Applications must be received or postmarked by Friday, April 1, 2016.
