For the past five years, IC Federal 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 nearly 60 applicants based on their academics, extracurricular activities, and a creative proposal outlining how they would give back to their communities if given the opportunity.
“Higher education holds immense value for us at IC,” commented Christopher Hendry, President and CEO. “Through our scholarship program, we aim to lend a helping hand to families grappling with the escalating costs of tuition. The recipients of these scholarships were chosen not only for their academic achievements but also for their shared dedication to making a positive impact on our communities. We are excited to see these promising individuals thrive as they begin their first semester.”
The scholarship recipients were meticulously chosen, not solely based on their academic prowess, but also for their shared passion for community engagement. Demonstrating a collective commitment to making positive contributions to society, these exceptional individuals embody IC’s core principles.
