U of I Community Credit Union is devoted to supporting higher education and encouraging the academic excellence of today’s youth.

With this commitment in mind, U of I Community Credit Union has developed a higher education scholarship program called the Orange & Blue Scholarship Program.

Available to members who are college-bound high school seniors, the scholarships are designed to benefit students attending the University of Illinois, Parkland College, and other Illinois colleges and universities.

Through seven one-time scholarships annually, the Orange & Blue Scholarship Program awarded selected high school seniors up to $1,000 based on the Illinois college of their choice for the 2017-2018 academic year.
