Calvin J. Peterson Memorial Scholarship

The 2020 scholarship applications were reviewed by an independent committee, who selected two recipients to receive a $1,000 award for the 2020-2021 academic year based on academic record, demonstrated leadership, participation in school and community activities, honors, work experience, and his/her statement of goals and aspirations.

Congratulations to 2020 Calvin J. Peterson Memorial Scholarship winners Ava Bentley of Muskegon, MI (left) and Andrew Schulte of Montague, MI (right)!

The scholarship program was established in 2008 in honor and memory of Calvin J. Peterson, our former Board President, and is open to Service 1 Federal Credit Union members and their families. Applicants must be college-bound high school seniors or current college students enrolled in a degree-granting accredited college, university or trade school. Scholarship winners receive a one-time, non-renewable award.

The 2021-2022 application period will open late fall 2020 and close February 2021. See application for complete details, eligibility requirements, and restrictions during this time. Thank you for your interest in the Calvin J. Peterson Memorial Scholarship program.
