Offer your own scholarships!
If your credit union or chapter would like to offer your own scholarship(s) as well, we'll provide you with a list of your credit union's top 10 applicants for a nominal fee.  

If you would like to receive more than your top 10 scores, you can make that request when sending your credit union's/chapter's completed applications to the Association. The cost for additional scores is $3.00 per score, which will be billed upon receipt of the request.
