Scholarship Program 

At PremierOne Credit Union giving back to the community is important to us, especially giving back to our young members who are the key to our future. Our Scholarship Program offers two scholarships to graduating high school seniors or undergraduate students, to recognize outstanding leadership skills and excellence in community service. The program was created to honor late Robert E. DeBarr, who was a Credit Union Board of Directors volunteer, and honor late Richard Busse, who was part of the Supervisory Committee and served our community for the past 40 years.

About The Program

The Scholarship Program was established to assist student members who plan to continue education in college or vocational school programs. Scholarships are offered each year for full-time study at an accredited institution of the student’s choice.
