The Affinity Plus Foundation recognizes the value of higher education in one’s pursuit of success. And greater learning comes at a greater cost. Since 2001, the Affinity Plus Foundation has awarded almost $500,000 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 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 Affinity Plus Foundation are not eligible for the scholarship. Affinity Plus Federal Credit Union and Affinity Plus Foundation employees and 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.
- Affinity Plus members can apply for both the Campus Scholarship and the Annual Scholarship if they meet all qualifications. Additionally, the Minnesota Credit Union Foundation offers an annual scholarship program for credit union members across the state.
