Dollars for Scholars Scholarships
At Guardian, we love to give back to the community, including to our own members. One of the ways we do this is through our Dollars for Scholars scholarship program. These scholarships are funded exclusively by our employees, who can donate a portion of each paycheck to the scholarship fund.
The application deadline is generally in late April. The application window will open and the deadline will be announced in February.
Who can apply for a Dollars for Scholars scholarship?
To be eligible for a Dollars for Scholars scholarship, you must:
- Be currently attending (or attending the fall following the spring application deadline) a 4-year or 2-year college or a technical school
- Have been a Guardian Credit Union member since at least January 1 of the year prior to application
- Complete the application in its entirety
I am a member, but my child is not, can he apply?
Only those individuals who are members or joint members will be eligible for the Dollars for Scholars scholarships. Minors under the age of 18 may become a member by opening a joint account with an adult.

Each year, at least four scholarships are awarded.
What is the dollar amount of awarded scholarships?
The value of each scholarship will be dependent on the total amount contributed by GCU employees.
