Community First is proud to sponsor several scholarships for students from our service area.
Greater Fox Cities Chapter of Credit Unions Scholarships
Graduating high school seniors who are active members of a local credit union have a chance to win one of three $1,000 scholarships awarded by the Greater Fox Cities Chapter of Credit Unions.
An application form and rules about the 2018 scholarships can be found by clicking on the 2018 FCCCU Scholarship form-rules in the documents column on the right. The application deadline is Feb. 5 and the scholarships will be presented at a March 19 banquet.
Alexa Bonneville of Menasha, a 2017 graduate of St. Francis Xavier HS and a Community First CU member, was one of three chapter scholarship winners in 2017. The others were: Corrina Romandine of Lena, Wis. (Oconto Falls HS) and Johanna Kopecky of Oshkosh (Appleton West HS).
Celebrating Volunteers Youth Scholarship
Community First is once again sponsoring the Youth Scholarship Award at the 2018 Celebrating Volunteers community gala scheduled for April 26 at the Radisson Paper ValleyHotel in Appleton. The award recognizes a high school student who has demonstrated exceptional leadership in promoting volunteerism in the community.
The recipient will receive a $1,500 scholarship upon graduation from high school and $1,000 they can give to a local charity. Consider nominating a high school senior by the Feb. 5 deadline.
The 2017 recipient was Menasha resident Kaylie Bittner, a St. Mary's Central HS graduate, who chose to donate the $1,000 to the Neenah-Menasha Emergency Society.
