Ohio Credit Union Foundation - $5000 VIDEO SCHOLARSHIP

Lifting up students moving on to higher education is the drive behind the annual Ohio Credit Union Foundation video scholarship. Students can submit a short video for the chance to win $5,000 towards college.

Applications are being accepted from Feb. 1, 2017 through Sunday, April 30, 2017, and we want you to play a role in promoting this substantial scholarship to your members.  To qualify for the video scholarship, student applicants must:
  • be at least a high school senior
  • be a member of an Ohio-based credit union, and
  • plan to pursue an undergraduate degree during the 2017-2018 school year.
  • Create a 1 to 2½-minute video answering the scholarship question: “How does being a member of a not-for-profit credit union differ from traditional for-profit financial institutions?”

Video entries can be edgy, funny, bold, simple, serious – or anything in between.

Video entries must be submitted online via the Foundation’s website,, by 11:59:59 p.m. EST Sunday, April 30. Video finalists, selected by a judging panel, will appear on the website and the scholarship winner will be announced May 22.
