Prospera Credit Union offers educational awards

Credit union to give more than $20,000 to students in British Columbia

Did you know that each year, Prospera presents more than $20,000 in awards and scholarships to deserving students in communities throughout Metro Vancouver and the Okanagan?

The tradition continues in 2012. Prospera recently announced that their 2012 Educational Awards are now open to applications from both members and non-members.

This year, in addition to the four existing awards (one of which is presented in each of the four regions served by Prospera), there is also the brand new Ron Sweeney Rising Star Award, to be presented to an exceptional high school student preparing for post-secondary education.

Applications for the Educational Awards Program are available on Prospera’s website at www.prospera.ca or can be picked up at any one of Prospera’s 16 branch locations. Deadline for applications is March 31, 2012.

Prospera will also be working with schools through a program that encourages middle and high school students to take a closer look at the advantages of staying in school and how the choices they make can positively impact their future dreams, aspirations and outcomes.
