Scholarships & Grants

Teacher Grant

Have a great class project idea? Each Spring and Fall our credit union Awards 10 Teacher Grants of $500 Each.

We support teachers who want to make a difference with our bi-annual Teacher Grant Program. We are pleased to support the education community by offering our Teacher Grant Program. The Grant is designed to assist educators by funding innovative learning opportunities for their students.

Since the creation of the program in 2012, more than $115,000 has been awarded to schools throughout Los Angeles and San Diego Counties. Schools benefitting from last year’s program used the funds towards initiatives such as special education, business concepts, solar energy, water conservation and literacy.

Annual College Scholarship Program

Since the creation of the scholarship program in 2005, our credit union has awarded more than $275,000 to students. Each year, our College Scholarship Program awards $1,000 to 20 students throughout Los Angeles and San Diego Counties to pursue higher education. Eligible participants must have a minimum grade point average of 3.0 and plans to attend an accredited college or university in the following academic school year. Selection criteria also includes academic performance, school or community involvement, a letter of recommendation, and an answer to a short essay question.

Rookie of the Year

In partnership with the Los Angeles Unified School District, California Credit Union created the Rookie of the Year program to honor first-year educators who have shown an exemplary commitment to education. Since its inception in 2015, California Credit Union has recognized 77 LAUSD first-year teachers. On August 5, 2018, 18 Rookies of the Year were hosted at a Los Angeles Sparks basketball game where they were celebrated on court during pre-game activities. Congratulations to the 2018 Rookies of the Year.
