About Scholarship

Encompass Credit Union is proud to offer this scholarship to our Members who are currently accepted to a post-secondary institution! We recognize the importance of education and the role it plays in personal and professional fulfillment.  That's why we want to help these students to attain their educational goals and reach their full potential. Applications for apprenticeship programs will not be considered at this time. 

We are always looking for students who have shown a passion for bettering their local communities!

You must be a member of Encompass Credit Union to apply for this scholarship. You must be currently enrolled and attending post secondary when the scholarship is awarded in February of each year. You cannot be awarded if you're still in Grade 12. 

We're a full service credit union, offering all the product and services you'd expect from a bank, but better. Encompass Credit Union cares about our communities, last year alone, contributing over $200,000 back into our local communities we serve in Alberta. 

Applications will be accepted until the deadline of January 11, 2021. Scholarships will be announced publicly on February 11, 2021 at Encompass Credit Union's annual general meeting. You do not have to be in attendance to receive the scholarship.
