Selection Process

Scholarship recipients will be selected by Cyprus Credit Union’s Scholarship Committee based on the quality of the application and materials provided. Up to 15 scholarships will be awarded to students. Each scholarship will be valued at $1,000. Completion of an application with all its component parts does not guarantee an award, even if there are fewer than 15 applicants. The Scholarship Committee reserves the right to award as many or as few scholarships as meets its criteria. All scholarship applicants will be notified of the committee’s decision by May 1, 2023. Applications from dependents or employees of Cyprus Credit Union will be reviewed by an independent committee. Up to five of the total scholarships may be awarded to Cyprus dependents.

Please Note:

Scholarship recipients will receive a single check made payable to themselves AND their prospective college, university, or trade school. If not used within 30 months, Cyprus Credit Union reserves the right to award the scholarship to a different applicant. Deferrals may be requested for those not planning to attend college directly after high school graduation.
