BlueOx Community Scholarship
At BlueOx Credit Union, we celebrate and promote education that engages, enriches and inspires our young people to develop knowledge and skills for life-long financial competence. Investing in our future leaders through our BlueOx Community Scholarship Program is one small way we give back to our communities. Scholarships are awarded to students that exhibit academic achievement, leadership skills and commitment to their communities. The BlueOx Credit Union Community Scholarship is open to all graduating high school senior members pursuing any form of postsecondary education. Six scholarships of $1,000 each will be awarded each year.
In honor of their dedication and volunteerism, we are proud to name two of our six scholarships after retired Board Members, Robert Harvey and Jeffrey Stanton: the Robert Harvey BlueOx Credit Union Community Scholarship and the Jeffrey Stanton BlueOx Credit Union Community Scholarship.
