American 1 Credit Union Announces 2024 Scholarship Availability For High School Seniors


Jackson, MI – American 1 Credit Union is pledging $15,000 to the Community Involvement Scholarship Program, awarding 15 high school seniors $1,000 each towards their college, certificate, or trade school tuition.


Funded by American 1’s Skip-a-Pay program, the scholarship program roots back to 2004. Skip-a-Pay allows credit union members to skip one month’s loan payment for a fee of $25, and a portion of the fee funds the scholarship & educational grant program.  


“Continuing education through a university or trade school is critical to build interest in various career paths,” stated Haley Hemmig, Community Partnership Manager for American 1. “The Scholarship & Educational Grant program allows us to give back to our communities through building well-rounded citizens who explore their interests while valuing diversity, equity, and inclusion, along with giving back in their communities. I cannot wait to see the submissions we receive!”


Scholarship applications are now open to submit and are due by April 5, 2024. For more information and an application, visit 


Established in 1950, American 1 Credit Union serves over 64,000 members, including over 250 employees, with 17 branch locations across Jackson, Washtenaw, Hillsdale, Lenawee, Wayne, and Calhoun counties. American 1, recipient of the Forbes Best-in-State Credit Union Award for 2023, is proud to serve the members of its communities by creating financial wellness through personal everyday banking.
