Scholarship Program 

PremierOne Credit Union is committed to making a positive impact on the community, particularly on young members who are the future of our society. To acknowledge exceptional leadership qualities and community service, we offer two scholarships to undergraduate or graduating high school seniors.

About The Program

We created the program to honor the late Robert E. DeBarr, a Credit Union Board of Directors volunteer, and the late Richard Busse, who was part of the Supervisory Committee and served our community for the past 40 years.
