Scholarship descriptions for DPSCD Seniors - Class of 2022
At Community Choice Credit Union, we believe strongly that access to education is one of the keys to helping people achieve the life they desire. Since its inception in 2009, the Foundation has granted $1.3 million in scholarships. We're offering another 25 scholarships for a total of $100,000.
Between now and 2028 there will be an average of 47,000 skilled trade job openings each year. Many skilled trade students often have fewer financial options for furthering their education. Our skilled trade scholarships allow more vocational students to achieve their educational and career goals and help to build a better future for Michigan.
Anyone who lives, works or worships in the state of Michigan is eligible for our scholarship that can be used for any accredited two/four-year degree, or certification programs in the state of Michigan. Each online application must be accompanied by an essay on the following topic:
“…tell us how you demonstrate the credit union value of “people helping people.” If possible, include an example of a time you have given back, or made a difference in your school, community, or workplace. Then, tell us how you plan to continue to “Give Big” to your community, school, or the state of Michigan after you complete your program and begin, or further, your career.”
Students can apply at MichiganScholarship.com by February 28, 2022. Thank you for your willingness to share this information and support education in Michigan.
