Student Banking is provided in many of the schools within our six affiliated local school districts. This program allows young members to make deposits into their Youth Savings Accounts right at school. It provides a means for understanding the importance of saving at a basic level, and it’s fun for your students too. Youth Savings Accounts begin earning dividends with a minimum average daily balance of just $50.00.
Each year, Emerald Credit Union selects up to two area high school graduates to be awarded with scholarships intended to aid with college expenses. We also proudly participate in the Greater Cleveland CU Outreach Alliance Scholarship Program, presented by the Ohio Credit Union League.
Ohio Credit Union Foundation Video Scholarship:
The Ohio Credit Union Foundation believes in lifting up our student members who are moving on to higher education through its annual video scholarship. Students may submit a short video for the chance to win $5,000 towards college. Applications are being accepted beginning Thursday, February 1, 2018 through Monday, April 30, 2018, and we want you to play a role in promoting this substantial scholarship to our members.
To qualify for the video scholarship, student applicants must:
- be at least a high school senior,
- be a member of an Ohio credit union, and
- plan to pursue an undergraduate degree during the 2018-2019 school year.
Applicants must create a 1 to 2 1/2 minute video answering the scholarship question: "If you ran your credit union, what initiatives, programs, and/or products would you implement to foster the philosophy of People Helping People?"
Video entries can be edgy, funny, bold, simple, serious, or anything in between. Entries will be judged on accuracy of information presented, effectiveness in addressing the scholarship question, and originality.
Video entries must be submitted online via the Foundation’s website, www.OhioCreditUnionFoundation.org, by 11:59:59 p.m. EDT Monday, April 30, 2018. Video finalists, selected by a judging panel, will appear on the website and the scholarship winner will be announced May 31, 2018. Please make sure to check out the Official Rules.
