Ardent is committed to social responsibility, and we take pride in helping our members achieve their goals. Scholarships are awarded based on the criteria provided, school activities, volunteer activities/employment, and content of two essay responses (mechanics, style, grammar, and originality). Life experience will be a contributing factor. Scholarship recipients are selected without regard to race, color, religion, marital status, national origin, veteran status, gender, or handicap. Scholarship finalists may be interviewed by members of the scholarship committee. All decisions by the scholarship committee are final and not open to contest.
Judging will be conducted by a scholarship committee consisting of selected volunteers from the Ardent Credit Union community. The primary intent of the Committee is to discover well-rounded and education-oriented individuals and assist them in advancing their education.
