Are you a high school senior or college student looking to defray the costs of higher education?  7 17 Credit Union is committed to helping students succeed! That’s why we offer 12, $1,500 scholarships for post-secondary education at accredited schools and universities for members or legal dependents of members.

Cha-Ching Scholarships: 7 17 offers two Cha-Ching Teen Club scholarships for Cha-Ching members who are recent high school graduates preparing to attend any accredited university or trade school.

The Edge Scholarships: 7 17 offers two scholarships to 7 17 The Edge Club members.  The Edge members can apply for this scholarship each year they are pursuing a post-secondary education at an accredited university or trade school.

University-based Merit Scholarships: Four university-based merit scholarships are available to graduating high school students planning to attend the largest universities located within the communities we serve: one scholarship each for Youngstown State University, Kent State University – main campus, Kent State University – any regional campus, and the University of Akron.

Credit Union Spirit Scholarships: As a financial cooperative, the resources of members are pooled to the financial benefit of the collective. These four scholarships speak to the credit union movement’s people helping people philosophy. Credit union spirit scholarships are also university specific and apply to the same universities as the university-based merit scholarships, but take financial need into account.
