Thank you for your interest in the Affinity Plus Foundation Scholarship program. Since 2001, the Affinity Plus Foundation has awarded over $400,000 to Affinity Plus members in annual scholarships. Incoming freshmen, current students, nontraditional students, and graduate students have opportunities throughout the year to apply for our Annual Scholarship and Campus Scholarship programs. Basic qualifications of each program include, but are not limited to:
- Applicant must be planning to attend or already be enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate program at an accredited non-profit school, a public or private college, community college, or technical college. Awards will not be disbursed until the student is accepted and enrolled in an accredited institution.
- Applicant must be an Affinity Plus primary member (a member with his/her own member number) in good standing or meet membership eligibility requirements and join the credit union prior to submitting a scholarship application. Beneficiaries or joint members do not qualify and must open their own membership before applying (the exception is when a husband/wife are on the same account, or a parent/guardian and minor).
- Previous winners or substantial contributors to the Foundation are not eligible for the scholarship. Affinity Plus Federal Credit Union and Affinity Plus Foundation employees or board members are also ineligible. Additionally, Affinity Plus Foundation Scholarship Committee members and their immediate families (defined as spouses, children, brothers, sisters, and parents) are not eligible.
The Affinity Plus Foundation Annual Scholarship closed on January 31, 2017. Winners will be notified and announced by April 1, 2017. The 2018 Annual Scholarship application will be open on September 1, 2017.
