Honor Credit Union Foundation encourages students to apply for annual scholarship

BERRIEN SPRINGS — Honor Credit Union is seeking high school seniors to apply for the annual Honor Credit Union Foundation Community Commitment Scholarship.

The foundation will award a $1,500 scholarship to 15 graduating high school or home school seniors throughout Honor’s communities.

To be considered for the scholarship, the student must be a primary account holder at Honor CU. The graduating senior must provide a 300- to 400- word essay discussing the importance of volunteering and community involvement and how it has impacted their lives and the lives of others.

The graduating senior must mail the application and supporting documents to the Berrien County Foundation. Any application delivered to an Honor CU branch will not be considered.

“Planning for college can be a very stressful time for graduating seniors and their parents,” said Kaylee Ganu, Honor’s vice president of community. “We love that the Community Commitment Scholarship helps students get one step closer to achieving their goals through education.”

Applications begin Feb. 1 and will be accepted through March 5. To download the application and view the complete list of requirements please, visit Honorcu.com.

Honor Credit Union is committed to staying true to its roots of supporting local schools. The foundation was created to allow for the opportunity to support immediate needs in our communities. Donations to the foundation are made through Honor Credit Union employees and their fundraising efforts.
