UW Credit Union to award Community Values Scholarships
MADISON, WI (January 28, 2014) — UW Credit Union is now accepting applications for its Community Values scholarship program. Seven $2,000 scholarships will be given to high school seniors this May.
“We’re looking for students who not only are strong scholars, but who are also focused on making their communities better places to live,” said Jaimes Johnson, Director of Community & Campus Relations at UW Credit Union. “Our recipients share our same commitment to bettering people’s lives.”
As part of the application process, students must submit an essay about their community service work and how it is meaningful to both themselves and their communities.
“It’s important for students to use their time and talent to give back,” said Johnson. “Our communities become stronger through the work of youth that not only see a problem, but who are ready to pitch in to make a difference.”
