College Scholarships

Each year, Metco Credit Union awards up to three $500 college scholarships to members who are high school seniors or currently enrolled in college. The 2020 scholarship program is now closed. Next year”s program will be announced in early 2021. Please watch our website and Facebook / Twitter pages for an announcement.

Congratulations to Our 2020 College Scholarship Recipients!

This is the seventh year Metco Credit Union has awarded scholarships to eligible members, and this year Metco awarded $500 scholarships to three members: Kaitlyn Goldsberry & Nolan Jacobs, high school seniors; and Reygan Weber, a current college student. All three members are from Cedar Rapids, IA. The winners are encouraged to use their scholarship funds to assist with paying tuition, room and board, or any other need they have as they prepare to attend college this fall.

Students were required to submit a scholarship application along with a 300-500 word essay on the topic, “What is your greatest financial fear/concern for the future, and what steps can you take to either overcome it or prepare for it?”

We received several great entries this year, and almost every submission talked about students being in fear of going into debt and concerns over paying it back. However, there were also many great ideas for preventing debt and paying it back!
Congratulations to Kaitlyn, Nolan & Reygan!  We are thrilled to be able to contribute to the educations and futures of these deserving members.

We will be closed Thursday, November 26th for the Thanksgiving Day holiday. // Please review our safety procedures prior to visiting the branch. Click here for details.
