Veridian's scholarship applications are now open for the 2024-2025 academic year. Four high school seniors and four post-high school applicants will each receive $2,000 toward tuition for post-secondary education at an accredited vocational, undergraduate or graduate program. An additional $2,000 will be awarded in conjunction with our ArtShare program to a high school senior enrolling in an accredited program that leads to a career in the arts. In total, Veridian will award $18,000 through nine scholarships, an increase from the $14,000 awarded to seven students last year.
“Veridian’s scholarship program is designed to meet a variety of students where they are and financially support the path to where they want to be,” said Ashtin Hotek, Veridian's Public Relations Strategist and scholarship coordinator. “It’s an investment in the students and in the future of our communities.”
Applications are due with a 500-word essay on February 2, 2024 for all but the ArtShare Scholarship, which are due April 26, 2024. The Veridian Scholarship will be administered by the Iowa Credit Union Foundation. Eligibility and application details for both scholarships are available at veridiancu.org/scholarship.
