SCCU began establishing the Nick Gerrish Scholarship over 30 years ago as a benefit to member-owners attaining a post-secondary education. For the 2021 awards, scholarship applicants were asked to write a brief essay describing future career goals and how scholarship funds would help meet those objectives. "We are honored to offer scholarships to a set of individuals whose achievements show great potential for leadership in SCCU member-owner communities," said Lynda Ellis, President/CEO of SCCU.

The three recipients of $2,500 scholarships are Bonnie Li, Margaret Knecht, and Katja Wilhelms. The Bay Mills Community College Scholarship is awarded each year to an SCCU member-owner that attends Bay Mills Community College. A scholarship in the amount of $1,500 was awarded to Alicia Bugg. 

More than $244,000 has been awarded to credit union members since 1986 through the Nick Gerrish Scholarship Program.
