2015 Warren A. Morrow Memorial Scholarship Winners

Congratulations to the 2015 Warren A. Morrow Scholarship winners:

  • $1,000 to Jennifer Fleege, a member of Dupaco Community Credit Union and a student at the University of Wisconsin – Madison.

Applicants were required to complete an online entry form and answer an essay question in no more than 500 words, which was designed to encourage participants to learn about the credit union movement and its mission. This year’s question was:

Student loans are a common way to help fund college education. Upon graduation, many students are left with a huge amount of debt they need to repay. What can you do to help offset the expenses of college? How can your credit union assist?

The winners were selected out of more than 340 applicants based on originality, clarity and meaningful content among other criteria.

“The mission of the Iowa Credit Union Foundation (ICUF) is to help Iowans build wealth, responsibility and independence,” said Jaimie Miller, Executive Director, ICUF. “We do this through critical programs such as the Warren A. Morrow Scholarship. This year’s six scholarship finalists demonstrated outstanding knowledge in offsetting college expenses and we are proud to award them with funding to help support their education.”

Applications for the 2016 Warren A. Morrow Memorial Scholarship will open later this year.
