Quest For Education Scholarship

Vantage Credit Union is dedicated to helping students reach their educational goals through higher education. We award ten $1,000 Quest For Education (QFE) scholarships to young members who qualify, to be paid to the recipients’ chosen accredited college, university or trade school at the time of fall registration. One scholarship is awarded per recipient, and funds can be used for books and tuition.


Applications must be received by March 1, 2024.
Recommendation letters must be received by March 8, 2024.

NOTE: Once your application is submitted, your teacher and sponsor will receive a unique link via email that they must use to submit their letters of recommendation before the deadline. We recommend asking them to commit to writing a letter of recommendation well before the deadline and completing your portion of the application early to ensure they have time to draft and submit their letters.


Any Vantage Credit Union member (primary account holder) who is a graduating high school senior may apply* for our QFE scholarship. If you’re not a member, you may open an account and become eligible to apply.
