AGCU Scholarship Recipients


SPRINGFIELD, Mo. –  We announced the recipients of our 2021 AGCU Scholarships Tuesday, May 24 at the Annual Business Meeting held at Central Assembly.

Every year we award scholarships to a number of New Attitudes members who are graduating from high school and plan to attend an accredited college or university in the fall of their graduation year. It’s just our way of thanking our New Attitudes members who have chosen AGCU as their banking institution.  If you would like to learn if you or a loved one qualify for an AGCU Scholarship, contact your local branch!
