Nelson & District Credit Union recognizes the financial needs of students continuing their education and offers a couple of options for local students looking to apply for scholarships.
First, check with your local high school. If you are attending either LV Rogers, Mt. Sentinel, Rossland or Crawford Bay Secondary Schools you can look into the awards available to you by talking to your principal.
You can also visit your local community branch of NDCU and pick up a Credit Union Foundation of BC bursary application form. They award funds to students through out a year.
If you are attending Selkirk College ask a Financial Aid Officer about the Nelson & District Credit Union Aspire Scholarship, Aspire Bursary and NDCU/Credit union Foundation of BC Community Alliance Bursary. These awards are presented on an annual basis.
Finally, if you have been involved with the Nelson & District Youth Centre look into the Community Spirit Youth Award. This award was created with the support of Nelson & District Credit Union to celebrate the youth centres 5th Anniversary.
If you have any other questions please contact NDCU, 250-352-7207.
