Education is an important part of the success of our communities. We are proud to support the youth in Crossroads Country by helping them to reach their goals through our scholarships.
Crossroads Credit Union issues one $500 High School Graduate Scholarship in each of the schools in our trading area which includes Canora, Preeceville, Sturgis, Invermay and Wadena. The candidates are chosen based on their demonstration of community involvement, extra-curricular activities, integrity, leadership, volunteer work and academic achievement. The candidates will also require a minimum of 80% average in core subjects and electives and be attending a post-secondary institution within the same calendar year. The final selection is jointly determined by the high schools scholarship committee and Crossroads Credit Union's selection committee.
Information is sent out directly to the high schools in April.
Crossroads Credit Union offers 3 - $1,000 Post-Secondary Scholarships to full-time students who are members of Crossroads Credit Union and have completed at least one year of studies at an approved post-secondary institution and are continuing their studies. We start accepting applications in April up until the beginning of August each year. Our scholarship selection committee adjudicates the applicants and selects the recipients.
