2020 Community Choice Foundation
The Community Choice Foundation embodies the credit union philosophy of people helping people. We have expanded our program to offer three different scholarships to students. With this broad range of educational opportunities, Community Choice supports Michigan students with whatever path they choose in life.
Recipients will be selected for their accomplishments in the classroom, community, and for their excellence in various educational categories. Recipients will also be celebrated at 10 regional ceremonies across the country: Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Northern CA, Phoenix, Puerto Rico, and Washington, D.C. (eligible students should apply in the region nearest to their area of residence).
The deadline to apply is Tuesday, October 15th. Students can apply at www.HispanicHeritage.org
