Scholarships

We’re teaming up again with the Minnesota Credit Union Foundation to award $16,000 in scholarships!

This year, 16 Minnesota credit union members will have the opportunity to cut the cost of college. Any member of MPECU currently pursing post-secondary education OR a high school senior graduating in 2022 is eligible to apply.

Application deadline is November 30, 2021.

This year’s essay question is:

How did the way you interact and communicate with businesses change during the pandemic and what would you like to see continue in the future? From these experiences, what suggestions do you have for your credit union? (Essay tip: Share your personal story; use the specifics you identified in the preliminary questions to write your essay).

MPECU also awards two $1,000 scholarships for University of Minnesota-Duluth’s Labovitz School of Business and Economics.

The purpose of this scholarship is to assist LSBE juniors and seniors who have declared a major in the school. To be considered, students must be a full time LSBE student; have declared their major in LSBE; and be in good academic standing. Preference will be granted to a student who is a MPECU member or is active in community service.

For information on applying for this scholarship, you must apply through UMD.
