Education is priceless.

Our mission is to make a difference in the financial lives of our members. And what better way to do that than to help our members further their education? Over the past 20+ years, we’ve awarded over $200,000 in scholarships to our members.

Ascend Scholarships

Each year Ascend awards $2,500 scholarships to five traditional and five non-traditional students attending accredited colleges, universities, technical schools and trade schools. Previous winners may reapply if they meet the requirements.

Currently, our scholarship application period is closed.
For updates, please follow us on social media for announcements on the next entry period.
