$10,000 in Scholarships Available to AmeriCU Members

Every year, AmeriCU is proud to award up to ten $1,000 scholarships to members who are either high school seniors or continuing college students. Scholarship recipients are chosen by a committee made up of AmeriCU members and award winners are honored at our Annual Meeting in March.

The application window has closed for 2022, but you can still download a fillable application here or visit one of our convenient locations to request a physical copy for next year.

The AmeriCU Scholarship Program is open to all primary members* who will be attending an accredited college, university or other institution of higher learning on a full-time basis during the next academic school year.

*Employees of AmeriCU, Directors, committee members, volunteers and their families are not eligible. Winners will be notified by March 1. Anyone not notified by March 1 was not selected as a scholarship recipient this year.
