Kellogg Community Credit Union enhances annual scholarship program

BATTLE CREEK, MI (February 8, 2022) — Kellogg Community Credit Union (KCCU) is excited to announce that they have enhanced their scholarship program and will be awarding twice as many scholarships in 2022! They will be offering a total of ten, $1,000 scholarships, to members who are attending a college, university, or trade school in Michigan starting in the Fall of 2022 to help cover tuition and admission fees. High school seniors attending college for the first time, high school graduates returning to college, and students pursuing a degree or certificate in the trades, are encouraged to apply.

KCCU has offered its scholarship program for over thirty years demonstrating their commitment to providing their members with financial opportunity, choice, and lifelong value. They believe in ‘people helping people,’ and stand behind the principles that promote personal development and social responsibility. Offering scholarships is one way that KCCU can assist members with the increasing cost of higher education.

“We are proud to support the educational dreams and goals of our members”, says Tracy Miller, CEO of KCCU. “We know that by increasing the number of scholarships we are awarding we will be able to ease some of the financial burden of higher education for more of our members. It’s another way we can show our commitment and support, to the communities we serve.”

Scholarship applicants who plan to attend college must be enrolled on a full-time basis with a minimum of 12 credit hours. Applicants must be a member of KCCU. Students within KCCU’s field of membership who are not yet members are welcome to join.

Students can apply online at www.kelloggccu.org. Applications will be accepted through April 1, 2022.  If you have any questions, please contact Julie Stevens at jstevens@kelloggccu.org or by phone at 269.968.9251 ext. 2274.
