2023 Scholarships Available

Expanding its annual tradition, Dakota West Credit Union is accepting scholarship applications from both high school seniors and current college students throughout the communities we serve. The western Dakota credit union also welcomes applicants who will be attending trade schools in the fall.

Two $1000 scholarships to graduating seniors and two $500 scholarships to continuing students will be awarded based on performance in an essay competition.

Students must be already attending a two or four-year college, be enrolled in a trade school program into late 2024 or graduating high school this spring to be eligible. Students also must be a member at any of the eight branches of Dakota West Credit Union, and submit an essay based on one of four topics.

Established in 1941, each of the Dakota West Credit Union branches and its members and employees help grow the Dakota West family with exceptional commitment to building relationships and strengthening communities. Offering scholarships to students within its communities continues its focus on this growth through the next generation.
