Christian Community Credit Union’s "Scholarships for Success” Program awarded $52,000 in scholarships to 52 students in 2013. Recipients were selected based on their essay, academic excellence, extra-curricular activities and references. Applicants wrote an essay on their personal mission statement and how they plan to achieve their life’s mission with their academic goals. The Scholarship Program is offered each spring and awarded in June. Scholarships are available for undergraduate and post-graduate students who are members of Christian Community Credit Union with a checking account.
"I am so honored to be awarded a scholarship from Christian Community Credit Union! The Credit Union has been a great asset to me over the last few years. Banking with Christian Community Credit Union has allowed me peace of mind when it comes to being financially responsible. This scholarship will be a great aid as I travel to Israel in the coming months with Life Pacific College's study abroad program,” said Meagan McLaughlin, Life Pacific College student.
"Life Pacific College is grateful for the longtime partnership with Christian Community Credit Union. We deeply appreciate the scholarship support that assists our students with their academic goals,” said Dr. Jim J. Adams, President of Life Pacific College.
