CHAMPAIGN, Ill.– U of I Community Credit Union has awarded seven winners with its Orange & Blue Scholarship Program, which is designed to benefit students who are members and will be attending the University of Illinois, Parkland College, and other Illinois colleges and universities.
Scholarship applications are reviewed by a team of volunteers at the U of I Community Credit Union and are given a score based on the information and documents submitted. Applicants are asked various questions including their favorite activities throughout high school, and any honors or awards they have received. They are also required to submit two letters of recommendation and an essay relating to the benefits of credit unions.
“It is an honor to announce our winners,” stated Lisa Paul, UICCU AVP of Marketing. “This group of students not only demonstrated a high level of academic intelligence, they validated their commitment to the community through their extracurriculars and accomplishments.”
The seven 2019 Orange & Blue Scholarship winners were recognized at the Allerton Park Concert Series.
