Msgr. Forbes Scholarship Program
Awarded annually, the Msgr. Forbes scholarship was inspired to honor the legacy of the late Msgr. Eugene A. Forbes whose dedication and commitment to encouraging the pursuit of higher education, coupled with the credit union’s philosophy “People Helping People”, continues to be an integral part of Jolt.
The college scholarship is available to members of the credit union who are planning to attend or are currently attending a college, university, community college, or a trade or technical school. The award is based on the student’s personal achievements, scholastic accomplishment, financial need, community service and grade point average.
Since 1982, the scholarship committee has awarded over $2 million dollars to students who want to begin or continue their education. For 2023, $90,700 was awarded to 162 members.
