Credit Union West has announced that the organization’s 2021 Scholarship Program is now accepting applications from high school seniors in Maricopa, Pima, Pinal, Yavapai, Yuma, Mohave, Coconino, Cochise, Navajo, Apache and Gila counties.

In total, there are five $1,000 scholarships available.

“As a local credit union, we are committed to supporting individuals who live and work in the communities we serve,” said Karen Roch, president and CEO of Credit Union West. “Our tradition of providing meaningful scholarships to local high school graduates is one way that we help people achieve financial stability and success.”

The $5,000 in scholarship funding will support five high school seniors who plan to attend a trade school, two-year or four-year college in 2021.

Scholarship funds will help students manage the costs associated with pursuing their education. Recipients can utilize the scholarship for tuition, class fees, books and other related expenses.

As a part of Credit Union West’s legacy of serving military personnel, two of the scholarships are reserved for Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps participants.

Students must meet specific requirements and submit a short essay. To learn about the application, visit cuwest.org/scholarship.

Applications will close Wednesday, March 31. Scholarship recipients will be announced Monday, May 3.

“We believe in helping young people on their journeys to success and financial security,” Ms. Roch said. “Our annual scholarship program has supported students pursuing a post-secondary educational pathway that aligns with their goals.”
