Supporting Education

Prospera Educational Awards Program

Applications are now open and it’s bigger than ever!

We understand it’s not easy to go from dreaming to doing—that’s why we created the Prospera Educational Awards Program.

Each year we choose a few people who could use a bit of help. This includes students who have made a significant impact in their schools and local communities, as well as mature students who know it’s never too late to develop talents and abilities to their full potential.

We know a little extra money never hurt anybody (we are, after all, a credit union). That’s why our program offers 35 awards of $1,000, to put towards post-secondary education within our communities. That means $35,000 towards helping people achieve their goals!

The Educational Award Program is closed for 2020. Thank you for all who applied. We will be contacting the winners soon.
