Scholarships

ECU is proud to support the young, local Estonian community with scholarship opportunities.

ECU Ekbaum Scholarship

Once a year, we open up our ECU Ekbaum Scholarship to students attending post-secondary school who are active in the Estonian community. The scholarship recipients are chosen by a four-person panel from the Board of Directors and staff of the Estonian Credit Union. In awarding scholarships, the panel places greater emphasis on the applicants' involvement in the Estonian community and the submitted written discussion. The ECU Ekbaum Scholarship typically begins to accept applications in the first few months of every year, and the scholarships are handed out at our Annual General Meeting.

Over the years, ECU has supported 181 post-secondary students with scholarships, distributing over $160 thousand dollars. Giving back and supporting our community is one of the core values at ECU. We are happy to continue our scholarship program and help our local youth prosper and grow.
