The FIC board members will select the scholarship recipients in March. The decision of the selection committee is final and not subject to review. Applications in the traditional student and in the non-traditional student categories are judged separately.

Scholarship winners will be posted on the FIC website. In addition, the scholarship recipients and their credit unions will be notified. Non-winners will not be notified.

Contact FIC Chair Bridget Moeller or FIC Liaison Laura Whittet with any questions.

Funds for the FIC scholarships are driven by the success of the annual Silent Auction held in conjunction with the Minnesota Credit Union Network’s Annual Meeting.

About Harvey Bakke

The two $1,000 Harvey Bakke Scholarships were named in honor of a long-time Minnesota Family Involvement Council member, Harvey Bakke. Harvey served on the FIC Board for 12 years. His dedication to the credit union community was extraordinary. A board member for the Red Lake Co-op FCU in Red Lake Falls, MN, Harvey gave his time, knowledge and support not only to the board of his credit union but to the FIC as well.
