Beaver Valley Chapter of Credit Unions Scholarships
Another scholarship is available through our affiliation with the Beaver Valley Chapter of Credit Unions. Five scholarships ranging from $500 to $1,500 will be awarded this year. This scholarship differs from the Armco Scholarships in two ways. 1. The program is open to ALL undergraduate students enrolled in a technical school or college (freshman, sophomore, junior, senior). 2. The student must be a member of the credit union.
Armco Credit Union does not judge or administer this scholarship.

2024 is the seventh year of the Armco Credit Union Scholarship program! Armco Credit Union has awarded over $100,000 in scholarships since its inception.
Promoting education and supporting the financial wellness of our members has long been a tradition at Armco Credit Union. The Armco CU Scholarship program began in 2018 to give back to our members and help students with rising educational costs. The scholarship amount has steadily increased from $5,000 in 2012 to $20,000 in 2024.
The Armco CU staff and Board of Directors continually fine-tune the program. They felt strongly that the application process should be simple and beneficial to the student. Therefore, the application is only one page and students submit a resume instead of writing a lengthy essay. Creating a resume provides real-life value to all students who apply and also provides fairness when scoring the application packets.
