Credit Union accepting scholarship applications


American Heritage Credit Union is awarding 30 high school senior members with a $1,000 scholarship to help ease the financial burden of higher education expenses.

American Heritage’s Scholarship Committee will select the 2024 recipients based on their scholarly merits, community and school involvement, a letter of recommendation, credit union eligibility, and a submitted essay describing an accomplishment, event, or realization that sparked a period of personal growth and a new understanding of oneself or others.

Eligibility requirements for graduating high school seniors include minimum GPA of 2.5 on transcript; have been formally accepted into an accredited two- or four-year college, university, trade, technical, or business school; be a member in good standing of American Heritage since April 1 (applicant must have an American Heritage account in their name to qualify); and cannot be an employee or family member of an American Heritage employee.

The Scholarship Program honors American Heritage’s Chairperson Emerita Cecilia B. Grady, who served on American Heritage’s board of directors for over 40 years. American Heritage’s annual scholarship program represents her dedication to financial literacy, education, and community outreach.

The application period ends on March 31. Students interested in applying can visit to begin the application process or to read the full list of submission materials or eligibility requirements.
