Congratulations to the 2019 Youth Scholarship Winners!

Out of over 75 applications, these 32 young adults stood out as amazing students with large goals and a strong drive for future success. With future careers including engineering, education, law, neontology, and archaeology, we are proud of these students and are honored to help them on their journey.

“Receiving this scholarship would help me to achieve my goals at Michigan State University; going to a large university is all about growing up and figuring out how to manage oneself. An important step in that direction for me is being able to help my parents pay for my education in any way I can, this scholarship is one of those ways. It would also provide me with a sense of accomplishment and help me to achieve my educational goals financially.” Christina, Fort Gratiot

“Earning this scholarship would mean the world to me. With this award, I am gifted the chance to pursue my dreams of attending a four-year university in order to further my education. All my gratitude is granted to Advia Credit Union for allowing me this incredible opportunity.” Samantha, Galesburg

Representatives from Team Advia are excited to attend scholarship award ceremonies at local high schools throughout May. It is an honor to celebrate the achievements of these intelligent and driven young adults and help support their future.
