(BEDFORD) – Hoosier Hills Credit Union is again making $500 scholarships available to seniors chosen by scholarship selection committees at nine participating high schools throughout the HHCU service area.
The schools are Bedford North Lawrence, Forest Park, Heritage Hills, Jasper, Mitchell, Orleans, Paoli, Tell City and Springs Valley.
Some schools’ scholarships are administered by foundations.
Graduating students in the top third of their class and who have participated in school and community activities are urged to apply for the financial awards.
Eligible seniors must also have parents or guardians who are HHCU members. Recipients must be enrolled as full-time students at an approved institution and be recommended by the school’s Scholarship Committee.
HHCU urges graduating seniors to contact their high schools’ Guidance Counselors and verify schools’ scholarship application deadlines. Some schools’ deadlines are as early as March 1.
“As a credit union, our mission is to make a positive difference in the lives of our members and their communities,” said Hoosier Hills Credit Union President/CEO Travis Markley. “We’re proud to be able to help some member families invest in their children’s educations and futures.”
