Scholarships

To underscore its commitment to education, the Maps Community Foundation began offering college scholarships in 2005. Since then, the foundation, which is the charitable affliate of Maps Credit Union, has give away more than $110,000 to deserving students.

The Maps Community Foundation offers scholarships to students pursuing a college degree. Winners are chosen by a board of Maps employees and volunteers based on each applicant's grades, aptitude, participation, accomplishments, career objective, need, answers to essay questions and performance during an interview.
