LAFCU’s college scholarship essay contest for adult women is open for applications. The Michigan credit union will award three $1,000 Lansing Community College scholarships to women pursuing education needed to enter or re-enter the workforce or to advance in their careers.
The deadline for the 2020 Women Helping Educate Every Lady (W.H.E.E.L.) Scholarship Essay Contest is Friday, July 31.
“The W.H.E.E.L. program is focused on women because it is women who most often delay their education and careers due to family situations,” said Kelli Ellsworth Etchison, LAFCU chief marketing officer. “We want to help those who have decided it’s time to advance professionally, and we hope this inspires others with the message that it’s never too late to work toward a life goal.”
The W.H.E.E.L. scholarship is ideal for women who need some classes to complete a degree or to become licensed or certified for a new occupation.

Winners will be determined by their one-page essay about their new career choice or advancement goal, why they want to pursue it now, and their inspiration for pursuing it.
Applicants must live, work or attend church or school in Michigan, which is LAFCU’s geographic service area. They do not need to be LAFCU members.
