Heartland Member Wins MNCU Foundation Scholarship

We’re proud to announce Brian, of Montgomery, MN has won a $500 Scholarship from the Minnesota Credit Union Foundation Scholarship Council (FSC). A total of $10,000 was awarded to 16 credit union members in Minnesota.

Nearly 600 students from credit unions throughout the state applied for scholarships. Applicants were selected based on school and community involvement. The FSC considered each applicant’s school and community involvement, as well as an essay answering the following question, “How can the credit union of the future best serve you?”

Scholarships were awarded in two categories: Traditional and Non-Traditional. Heartland has been a long-time supporter of the FSC Scholarship program.

Kathy Harrington, CEO, said, "We are so excited that a Heartland member was chosen from nearly 600 other students in Minnesota. We’re proud to be a part of this scholarship program and will continue to support it to ensure our members have access to scholarship opportunities.”
