Premier Members Credit Union to award five $5,000 scholarships and $25,000 in nonprofit grants
BOULDER, CO (January 10, 2024) — High school seniors can apply for one of five $5,000 scholarships at Premier Members Credit Union toward tuition at a college, university, or trade school. Students can apply online at pmcu.org/scholarships. The application window will be open from January 15 – March 15, 2024.
“We are proud to offer our annual Premier Members scholarship to students seeking higher education in any form,” said Karen Bigelow, Corporate Social Responsibility for Premier Members Credit Union. “We are excited to reward both traditional and non-traditional students the opportunity to pursue higher education.”
Nonprofit organizations who meet the criteria, can apply for $25,000 of grants which will range from $1,000-5,000 each from Premier Members Credit Union at pmcu.org/grants.
By utilizing an online application for nonprofit organizations, we have stronger impacts in our communities because it opens our giving program to more organizations. There is a three-year limit in the giving program so Premier Members will be able to contribute to more organizations, it will impact and support smaller nonprofits as they must have an operating budget under $1 million and will allow us to amplify their work and acknowledge them at a celebration event in May.
