CU1 Scholarship Winners
Each year, Credit Union 1 is proud to award valuable scholarships to Alaskan students in pursuit of higher education. These scholarships celebrate our roots as an Anchorage teachers’ credit union and our passion for lifelong learning! 2021 marks our 34th year of awarding scholarship funds. This year's winners included students from Fairbanks, Kenai, Ketchikan, Kodiak, Anchorage, Wasilla, Eagle River and Chugiak.
In total, we were excited to give $24,000 in scholarship funds to our winners. We’d also like to extend special thanks to all talented applicants who applied for our 2021 Bill Countryman Scholarship but were not selected this year. While reviewing each and every application, we were proud to see how so many of you are expanding your education to help make Alaska an even better place to live.
