Apply for the OCUF Video Scholarship

A $5,000 video scholarship opportunity for Ohio credit union members pursuing an undergraduate degree is available from the Ohio Credit Union Foundation (OCUF). Entrants must answer the scholarship question, “How does being a member of a not-for-profit credit union differ from traditional for-profit financial institutions?” by creating a 60-second to 2½-minute in length video. Video entries can be edgy, funny, bold, simple, serious – or anything in between.

To qualify for the video scholarship, student applicants must:

  • be at least a high school senior
  • be a member of an Ohio-based credit union, and
  • plan to pursue an undergraduate degree during the 2017-2018 school year.

Applicants must:

Create a 1 to 2½-minute video answering the scholarship question: “How does being a member of a not-for-profit credit union differ from traditional for-profit financial institutions?”

Video entries can be edgy, funny, bold, simple, serious – or anything in between.

Video entries must be submitted online via the Foundation’s website, www.OhioCreditUnionFoundation.org, by 11:59:59 p.m. EST Sunday, April 30. Video finalists, selected by a judging panel, will appear on the website and the scholarship winner will be announced May 22.
