Frequently Asked Questions:

Do I have to use the money for college?

No, the scholarship can be used for any purpose once it is awarded.

Where do I get a reference letter?

Ask a teacher, employer, coach, or mentor for a letter of reference. No letters from family members will be accepted.

What if I am not a member of the credit union?

Only Park Side Credit Union members are eligible for the scholarship. We encourage everyone to join, but only those students with an account open for at least 30 days at time of application will be considered.

There isn’t a Park Side branch where I live – can I still apply?

If you are already a member, you are automatically eligible. If you live in one of the 11 western Montana counties that we serve, you qualify to become a member and can then apply for the scholarship.

How do I know that my application was received?

You should receive an email from Park Side Credit Union within a few days of delivery. Emailing your application is the quickest method.

How will my application be judged?

Every application will be reviewed by the Park Side employee committee and judged on the level of professionalism and creativity. The grading is subjective and is completely up to the selection group.

Why do I have to sign the publicity release?

Park Side Credit Union focuses on community involvement and is active on social media. We would like the ability to use any success stories in our marketing outreach and public relations campaigns.
