Back in 1952, Credit Union 1 began as Anchorage Teachers’ Credit Union – so education has always held a special place in our hearts. The Bill Countryman Scholarship program, named for a longtime CU1 Board Member, honors our roots as a teachers’ credit union while helping today’s CU1 members afford their educational dreams. If you or someone you know could use a helping hand toward college tuition, click here for an application!
Need additional help to bridge the gap? Credit Union 1 also offers the Smart Option Student Loan® by Sallie Mae®.
