The scholarship granted by PenAir Credit Union truly let me dive deep into my education each semester without the looming financial anxiety a lot of college students unfortunately face. I was able to get my tuition covered, as well as have a little extra to store away in savings. I was able to focus on school, my development, and giving back to my community.

Applications are available starting in January through March 24, 2024.

The number of scholarships to be granted each year will be determined by PenAir’s Senior Leadership Team.

PenAir will pay up to $1,250 per semester (Fall and Spring Semesters only) toward tuition, fees, and supplies to attend school. The scholarship will be equal to the cost billed by the school for each semester or $1,250 whichever is less. Scholarship funds will be paid directly to the school by PenAir.

Scholarship payments are eligible for Fall and Spring semesters only, depending on the degree or certificate pursued.

Don't Get Disqualified

  • Scholarships are for high school seniors only. Sorry, no Higher Education or Graduate students.
  • We cannot award a scholarship to a previous recipient – no double dipping.
  • Attachment issues — any application forms that are submitted without the required attachments will be omitted.
  • Submitting an application after the March deadline will not be considered. When you snooze, you do — in fact — lose.
