Ripco Credit Union Scholarships
Ripco Credit Union is committed to improving the financial lives of our members. One way that we show that commitment is to provide scholarships to outstanding high school graduates who plan to continue their education at a two-or-four-year institution of higher learning.
For many years we have provided scholarships to graduating Rhinelander High School Students. As our field of membership has grown to include a significant number of members in Eagle River and Three Lakes, WI, we have added to that program, and for several years have offered scholarships at Northland Pines High School in Eagle River and at Three Lakes High School.
In an effort to be even more inclusive and offer an opportunity to students who do not attend one of those three schools, in 2016 we added a “Field-of-Membership” scholarship. This scholarship may be offered to a student living within our field of membership (the Wisconsin counties of Oneida, Vilas, Forest, Langlade, Lincoln, Price or Florence) and graduating from a high school (other than Rhinelander, Eagle River or Three Lakes) or from an alternative educational program that has prepared the student for acceptance into a two-or-four-year institution of higher learning.
For all of our scholarships, the awards are based on Ripco Credit Union membership (the applicant must be a primary Ripco member for at least 90 days prior to the date of application), academic achievement, career and educational goals, extra-curricular activities and community involvement, and a written essay.
Interested students who will be graduating from high school in 2018 (and who are not students at Rhinelander, Three Lakes or Northland Pines high schools) should complete and submit our “Field-of-Membership” scholarship application prior to March 15, 2018.
