Announcing the 2013 Rose M. Ratka College Scholarship

If you’re a high school senior thinking about continuing your education, make sure not to miss the opportunity to apply for the Alliance Credit Union Rose M. Ratka Memorial Scholarship.  Applications are due by April 1st.  Click here to download an application.

The Rose M. Ratka Memorial Scholarship Program is for high school seniors who intend to further their education through a trade school, apprenticeship program, community college, state or private university. The scholarship program was developed to honor the late Rose M. Ratka who was President/CEO of the credit union from 1978 to 1996. An astute business woman who achieved remarkable success in the industry, Rose strongly believed in continuing education and we are proud to honor her beliefs. Scholarship funds are awarded to those students who best exemplify Rose’s courage, spirit and dedication. The scholarship is awarded annually, for application to school the following fall.

Scholarship funds are awarded in the Spring and should be used to pay for tuition, books, school supplies, etc. All applicants must have a minimum 2.5 GPA and be members of Alliance to apply for this scholarship. If a student does not have an account with Alliance, he/she may join at the time of application and the $10 lifetime membership fee will be waived. All that is required is a $25 minimum deposit to open a membership account.
