Unitus Scholarship Program

Every year, we award scholarships to outstanding student members.

Unitus Community Credit Union is pleased to offer scholarships to assist student members and child dependents and spouses/significant others of Unitus employees with the cost of higher education.

This program is administered by Scholarship America®, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarship, tuition assistance and other education support programs for corporations, foundations, associations, and individuals. Awards are granted without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, gender, disability, or national origin.
