Expanding upon last year’s new scholarship tradition, Dakota West Credit Union will again be accepting scholarship applications from both high school seniors and current college students throughout the communities it serves. We also welcome applicants who will be attending trade school in the fall to apply.
Four $500 scholarships will be awarded to members of Dakota West Credit Union through an essay competition focusing on the importance of effective communication and how it has had an impact on their life.
Students must already be attending a two- or four-year college, be enrolled in a trade school program into late 2022, 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 the values of the non-profit credit union headquartered in Watford City, North Dakota.
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.
Applications for the scholarship are available here. The deadline for submission is Friday, April 09, 2021 with winners announced on Friday, May 14th on Dakota West Credit Union’s Facebook page.
