Each year we recognize three Electro Savings members, who are high school seniors, for their outstanding academic achievements and community involvement. Each student receives a $1,000 scholarship award applied directly to their fall tuition.

This scholarship honors long-time credit union volunteer and Director Emeritus, the late Edward G. Halliburton. Since the scholarship program started in 1993, the credit union has awarded $82,000 to further the higher education of our young credit union members.
