The Unison Credit Union John Aman Memorial Scholarship awards $2,000 to students who best mirror the credit union philosophy of “people helping people” and who have learned the importance of volunteerism and giving back to his or her community. This scholarship is given in memory of John Aman, Unison’s first CEO who was hired in 1970. Aman’s commitment to the credit union industry and community were evident through his passion for volunteerism and putting the needs of our membership first.
You do not need to be a Unison Credit Union member to apply, but additional consideration may be given to current members or children of current members. Applicants must be a graduating high school senior planning to attend a two to four-year degree program at a college, university or technical school and either live or attend school in one of our membership-eligible areas of Outagamie, Brown, Calumet or Manitowoc counties, the City or Town of Neenah, the City of Menasha, or the Village of Fox Crossing.
Applications are scored based on students who best mirror the credit union philosophy of “people helping people” and who have learned the importance of volunteerism and giving back to his or her community. We also look at co-curricular activities and employment.
Please answer all questions and do not use acronyms (i.e., use American Cancer Society, not ACS).
Winners of the scholarship will be notified at the school’s awards presentation. If the student is not present, he or she will be notified by mail.
Scholarship award money will be paid out in two increments. In order to receive the scholarship proceeds, you must present proof of enrollment at your school of choice (e.g., copy of class schedule or invoice). The check will be made out to the student. It is the student’s responsibility to contact Unison when his or her class payment invoice has been issued.
