Ascend believes education is paramount to a successful future. That’s why we offer the Ascend Federal Credit Union Scholarship Program.
Each year we award a $1,000 scholarship to 12 of our members to help them continue their education at an accredited college, university, technical, or trade school. The scholarship awards are divided between six traditional and six non-traditional students.
The scholarship is non-recurring, but previous winners may reapply if they meet the program requirements.
To be eligible to apply, you must be a member of Ascend Federal Credit Union, you must be at least a graduating high school senior and you must plan to enroll or prove enrollment as a full-time student at an accredited college, university, technical or trade school in the next academic year.
To establish membership, call 800-342-3086 or visit one of our financial centers.
All family members of Ascend Federal Credit Union's officials and employees are excluded from eligibility. For the purpose of this policy, “family member” is defined as a dependent child, grandchild or stepchild.
Scholarship winners may reapply for the next academic year.
