Alliance Credit Union Awards Five College Scholarships

Alliance Credit Union (Fenton) awarded $1,000 to five Dennis J. Sommer Scholarship for Excellence in Education recipients at its 67th Annual Meeting on May 21, 2015.

Scholarship recipients were selected on their ability to highlight the differences between banks and credit unions and the significance of those differences in an essay. Academic achievements, letters of recommendation and community involvement were also considered in the selection process. Since the program’s inception in 1997, Alliance Credit Union has awarded more than $60,000 in college scholarships to date.

“Honoring these future leaders is the highlight of our annual meeting each year," said Alliance CEO Tim Stephens. “We look at it as an investment and a way to demonstrate our commitment to the communities in which we serve.”

To be eligible, applicants must be Alliance Credit Union members (or the son, daughter or grandchild of an Alliance member), as well as either a full-time college student or a high school student that will be a full-time college student in the following year.
