Here’s what past winners had to say:

Caoimhe Kane – Winner 2014:
“I cannot begin to describe the help that the Scholarship has provided. It has been such a great aid financially for my academic life in University. Due to the Scholarship I have bought many supplies for myself, such as books, a laptop etc. Even fees wise, I was able to put most of the money towards paying it, which is why it is such a help as they are very expensive. I want to thank Credit Union Plus for beginning this scholarship programme because it is such an enormous help and really benefits your academic studies at University.”

Joanne Watters – Winner 2014:
“I found the grant to be a huge help in paying my college expenses. In my second year I stayed up in student accommodation, which may not have been possible without the grant. I am grateful for the opportunities this grant has given to me.”

Ben Hoey – Winner 2014:
“Receiving the scholarship from the Credit Union last year was a huge help to both myself and my family. Knowing that I had money for my college fees meant I wasn’t stressing about getting the money and I could concentrate fully on my studies. Also money that I had saved for my college fees could now go towards commuting costs. All in all I have greatly benefitted from receiving the scholarship from Credit Union Plus.”

Sonia Smith – Winner 2014:
“The scholarship has helped me so much at college this year as living away can be very costly. It was really beneficial to receive it and I’m really grateful to have gotten the scholarship from the Credit Union.”
