Park Community Credit Union supports higher education in our communities. We offer a variety of scholarships to meet the unique needs of different students. We also offer special scholarships designed for low income families.
Education and poverty are complexly tangled. Children from low income households are predisposed to various obstacles at school and at home, limiting their chances for educational success. At the same time, missed educational opportunities can trap them within the cycle of poverty. Some obstacles that children from low-income homes encounter may include instability, distress, low food access, and poor health. These issues can lead to social, physical, and cognitive consequences that make higher educational attainment difficult to achieve.
Park believes that every person should have an opportunity to reach their educational goals. Our scholarship program is a way to eliminate gaps of care in the education solution. Some of our opportunities include access to mentors, resource referral, transportation, and computer equipment. If you are a traditional or non-traditional student living in Kentucky or Indiana, we encourage you to apply to our scholarship program.
