About the Challenge

Nuvision Federal Credit Union is committed to giving back to the communities we serve and promoting opportunities for financial education growth and career enrichment. With this principle in mind, we are hosting the 2018 Essay Challenge Scholarship Program at participating High Schools in the communities we serve.

In addition to providing scholarships to the students, the program will also include donations to participating schools and sound financial education to the students/parents that we believe will be beneficial to them in this crucial time of their lives when making sound financial decisions is important and can lead to having a sound financial future.  We are very pleased to be able to support the students and help them achieve their educational and personal goals.
