Alliance Credit Union, Fenton, Mo., selected three recipients for its 14th annual granting of college scholarships. The students were selected based on their abilities to differentiate between banks and credit unions as well as their involvement in community service programs. Kristina Maine, Jacob England and Lauren Schlosser were honored with the $1,500 award. The Alliance’s program has contributed over $50,000 in college scholarships to date.

Christian Community Credit Union, San Dimas, Calif., awarded a total of $35,000 in scholarships in 2010. The sum, awarded to students enrolled at a college, university, or seminary, is just one way the credit union is attempting to provide for its younger members. Some of the credit union’s programs, such as Student Advantage Banking, exclusively for members ages 17-24, educate students on how to save money, while others such as Student Choice help fill gaps in educational funding through private loans.
