$2,500 for U (for college)

Our Super Awesome Scholarship is back in 2020.

Calling all super awesome students in Burbank! Scholarship season is here and we’re giving two (2) students a $2,500 scholarship. When we say “super awesome,” what do we mean by that?

We mean students must meet the following criteria:

  • Have a minimum 3.0 overall GPA
  • Be a UMe Credit Union member with an account open in their name before February 1st, 2020.
  • Be a senior enrolled in a Burbank High School
  • Be accepted into an accredited college (acceptance letter is required)
  • Be able to tell us what makes you…U! (aka personal essay)

Here are a few details you should know if you plan to apply (or if you’re a parent or guardian reading this and plan on politely forcing your kid to apply):

  • We will award two (2) Burbank high school seniors a $2,500 scholarship each. The winners will receive $2,500 in their name to use towards any higher education expenses.
  • In order to qualify for our Super Awesome Scholarship, you must hold an account for at least three months before applying. That means if you don’t have a UMe account already, you’ll need to open an account by February 1, 2020.
  • The applicants must be accepted into a junior college, accredited college or university, public or private, offering academic or vocational courses for a secondary education.
  • Essay must be typed in a legible font and submitted by May 1, 2020.
    UMe Insider Tip: We want to know what makes you tick. You’re probably writing a lot of these “personal statement” type essays right about now. This essay should look nothing like those other ones. Have fun. Be creative. This essay should show off your unique personality. The prompt is simple: Tell us about U!
