College Scholarships

MACU/Michigan City Exchange Club Scholarship

As the cost of education continues to rise, two of Michigan City’s non-profit organizations, Members Advantage Credit Union (MACU) and the Michigan City Exchange Club (MCEC), are teaming up to offer two Michigan City seniors from Michigan City High School or Marquette Catholic High School $1,000 college scholarships.

In addition to maintaining an overall GPA of 3.00 or higher, applicants must submit a completed application, transcript, and essay of 1,000 words or less on their future goals and what they mean to the community.

Essays are due by November 15, 2021, and will be judged by a panel from MACU Management and the Board of Directors, and a member from MCEC. The two scholarships will be awarded at an MCEC luncheon in early 2022.

 Students can access applications online at macuonline.org or at the MACU Ohio Street Office located at 3064 S. Ohio St. Michigan City, IN 46360.

Completed submissions may be dropped off at the MACU Ohio Street Office.
