During 2023 we will award over $35,000 in scholarships.

Scholarship Program

During 2015, Connexus Association established a scholarship program to award scholarship dollars to students of local schools for the purpose of promoting continued study in the business and education fields.  In 2017 the Association partnered with the Community Foundation of NorthCentral Wisconsin to expand our scholarship program to more schools.  The scholarship program was once again broadened in 2019 to include a partnership with an additional four high schools. As of 2023, the Association has partnerships with ten high schools while seniors at an additional 18 high schools are eligible to apply for a scholarship through the Community Foundation of NorthCentral Wisconsin.

Scholarship dollars will be awarded annually with priority consideration to support students currently attending schools within the Connexus Credit Union service area.

Students must currently be attending a school or planning to attend a school which participates in Scholarship Program.  Recipients are chosen based on the criteria below.
  • Must major in Business or Education

Public and private schools within the Connexus service area can participate in the Scholarship Program.
