TOPEKA — Quest Credit Union launched their first scholarship competition this quarter, which will award a $500 grand prize and a $250 second place prize to current or future students wishing to continue their education. A Quest Scholarship Fund has been established and will offer these scholarships annually.
"At Quest we know that what benefits the community, benefits the future," said Vickie Hurt, co-president/CEO. "We want to show Kansas communities that we are committed to lifelong learning."
The competition is unique in that it is open to the Kansas communities in which Quest serves, members and non-members; and, both traditional and non-traditional students are encouraged to apply. The awards may be granted to any eligible student, regardless of their choice of school: university, community college or vocational school.
"There is a need for hard-working, educated employees in every field," said Gary Colcher, co-president/CEO, "So, we made these scholarships available to anyone who is on a quest for higher learning and could use a helping hand."
Applications are due May 1st, and winners will be announced in June 2011. For applications, eligibility, or more information about the Quest Scholarship Competition, visit Quest-CU.org or contact Quest’s Marketing Department at 800-432-2470.
