We began as a teachers' credit union and still maintain close ties to our local school systems. In the spirit of supporting education, we are pleased to offer three scholarship awards for deserving students:

  • $1,000 Tom Gagnet Educational Scholarship
  • $1,000 Cecil Bollinger Scholarship
  • $1,000 Gay Shober Scholarship

Winners are selected on the basis of academic achievement, community involvement, and financial need.

At the discretion of the Board of Directors, we may also offer a $500 General Scholarship to a random applicant (chosen by a drawing) who was not awarded one of the three other scholarships.

In order to be considered for a scholarship, you must meet both of the following eligibility requirements:

  1. attend or have been accepted to a 2 or 4 year accredited college or university as a full-time undergraduate
  2. be a member, or the child of a member, of Roanoke Valley Community Credit Union for at least one year prior to the application date
