Scholarship Program

2020 College Scholarship Program

Inner Lakes is offering college-bound high school seniors the opportunity to compete for both statewide and credit union-wide college scholarships. Inner Lakes will award a total of 8 scholarships (in the amounts of $1,500, $1,500, $1,000, $1,000, $750, $750, $500 and $500) and may be used at a two- or four-year accredited educational institution.

Students can take advantage of this opportunity by completing three simple steps:

Step 1: Stop in to any Inner Lakes branch to request a scholarship application form or download it here. If the student is not a member of Inner Lakes, he/she can request a membership packet as well.

Step 2: Complete the application form, write an essay and obtain the required test transcripts, along with the signature of a parent or guardian.

Step 3: Return the completed form to any of our offices no later than January 10, 2020.

There is no fee for submitting an application, but students applying MUST be:

  • members of Inner Lakes;
  • college-bound high school seniors at the time of application; and
  • attending either a two- or four-year accredited educational institution for the first time in the fall of 2020.

In early spring, applications will be judged against other submissions. Winners will be announced in April / May.

Remote Deposits

What is this new service, Remote Deposit Capture (RDC)?

RDC allows Inner Lakes members to take a picture of a check and upload it directly to their account for deposit.

What are the details?

Simply open the Inner Lakes mobile app, log into your account, and click on the “Deposit” button. The first time you do this, you will have a simple electronic sign-up form to complete and submit. We will then notify you that this free service is now available to you. After that, when you hit the “Deposit” button, you will simply type in the amount of the check, and then snap a picture of the check itself (front and back). When we receive a check image from you, we’ll post the deposit to your account.
