We understand it's not easy to go from dreaming to doing-that's why we created the Prospera Educational Awards Program.
Each year we choose a few people who could use a bit of help. This includes students who have made a significant impact in their schools and local communities, as well as mature students who know it's never too late to develop talents and abilities to their full potential.
We know a little extra money never hurt anybody (we are, after all, a credit union). That's why our program offers 35 awards of $1,000, to put towards post-secondary education within our communities. That means $35,000 towards helping people achieve their goals! As much as we'd like to, we can't give out money to just anyone, so there are a few conditions.
So who qualifies?
