College Scholarship

Ben Watson College Scholarship


Inspire was proud to announce the winner of the 2016 Ben Watson Scholarship at their 80th annual meeting. The process, which begins in early January, starts with students submitting an application form, a copy of their high school transcript, a letter of recommendation and an essay. This year, the essay was titled "My Educational and Financial Goals for College and Beyond and the Role Inspire Federal Credit Union Can Play". After all the application material is received, a committee of judges at th Credit Union reviews and scores against a measure of standards applicable to all students. 

Luke Kohler, pictured below with Inspire Board Member Larry Reddick and Inspire President/CEO Jim Merrill, is awarded a $1,500 scholarship at Inspire's 80th annual meeting on Thursday, April 21st.
