Since 2018, IC Credit Union has awarded scholarships to graduating high school seniors who plan to continue their education at an accredited institution.
This year, IC awarded five scholarships of $1,500 each to students throughout the community. Winners were chosen from more than 50 applicants based on their academics, extracurricular activities, and a creative proposal outlining how they would give back to their communities if given the opportunity.
“IC firmly believes in the value of higher education”, commented Christopher Hendry, President and CEO. “Our scholarship program plays a small role in assisting families with the rising costs of tuition. These future leaders were selected not only because of their academics, but because they share our passion for giving back to our communities. We’re excited to see them thrive as they begin their first semester in the coming weeks.”
