The Odds:

We're a small credit union. Last year, the odds of receiving a scholarship were approximately one in twenty. It's worth applying!

If you have any questions, please let us know. The deadline is May 9th

The Sadly Necessary Disclaimer (none of this should be an issue, but we want to be clear): Arapahoe CU reserves the right to make changes to this program. While nothing major should happen, we want to make sure these scholarships are distributed appropriately. So, for example, if we get too many returning students, we may make the decision to award one specifically to a graduating senior. Alternatively, we may add to this program as funds allow. Again, however, any changes will be minor and not alter with the requirements set above. All accounts and corresponding applications are subject to approval at the credit union's discretion based on internal policies.
