By: Members Advantage Credit Union
"As a member of the Members Advantage Credit Union Board of Directors, President of the Exchange Club, as well as a retired Michigan City Fire Fighter, I'm heavily invested in the success of our community. I am so proud of our city and the investment being made to continue making it a great place to live. This scholarship program is an investment in the future leaders of Michigan City, ensuring our community has great leadership in the years to come," said Jack Van Etten.
In addition to maintaining an overall GPA of 3.00 or higher, applicants must submit a completed application, transcript, and essay of 1,000 words or less on their future goals and what they mean to the community.
"Providing a forum for the young people in our community to give input on what they think could make Michigan City a better place to live while also giving them an opportunity to win a scholarship is a win/win," remarked MACU President Frank Beachnau.
Essays are due by November 15, 2021, and will be judged by a panel from MACU Management and the Board of Directors, and a member from MCEC. The two scholarships will be awarded at an MCEC luncheon in early 2022.
Students can access applications online at macuonline.org or at the MACU Ohio Street Office located at 3064 S. Ohio St. Michigan City, IN 46360. Completed submissions may be dropped off at the MACU Ohio Street Office. For more information, please call (219) 874-6943 or visit www.macuonline.org.
