Scholarships are waiting!

Abound is awarding $25,000! Apply online by March 31, 2024.

Some of our students have been Members since birth, and others have been Members since learning about the opportunity for college scholarships through the Credit Union. We are equally as proud of all our students who are Abound Members!

There’s incredible benefit to becoming an Abound Member when you’re a student. Students have access to financial knowledge from a young age, which in turn creates a clear pathway for financial success. In addition, students automatically qualify to apply for our Howard Roush Memorial Scholarship, also known as our Roush Scholarship. The Howard Roush Memorial Scholarship symbolizes our learning-driven culture and emphasis on growth, development and financial education.

Each year, Abound awards a total of $25,000 to ten deserving high school seniors in Abound service areas. This breaks down to $2,500 for each recipient to use toward college expenses – many students purchase books, meal cards, and more.

This year, to qualify to apply for Abound’s Roush Scholarship students must have opened an Abound Savings Account on or before December 31, 2023. Students can visit our website to submit their application starting January 1, 2024. There is a series of scholarship eligibility requirements  listed.

Applications are accepted January 1 through March 31, 2024. Scholarship recipients are selected in April and awarded during our Annual Meeting on May 14.

Know of a student who you think is deserving of this scholarship? Share this information with them! If you are or know of a student who isn’t a high school senior yet, now is the time to open an Abound Savings Account. It’s never too early to qualify to apply!
