Elwood Harvey Co-operative Leadership Award

Looking to do something BIG with your future? We want to help!

Elwood Harvey Co-operative Leadership Award

If you’re in Grade 11, looking forward to your post-secondary education and seeking ways to develop your leadership skills, then this is a great opportunity for you.

We’re excited to offer the Elwood Harvey Co-operative Leadership Program, a unique and rewarding opportunity for you to learn about money, leadership, co-operatives and a whole lot more. This program is designed for young Affinity Credit Union members like you, who aspire to make a big difference in their community - and the $2,500 to fund your education won’t hurt a bit.

We created this scholarship dedicated to the late Elwood Harvey to honor his significant contribution to the credit union and co-operative movement. You can learn more about his legacy here.

Every year 20 lucky students are accepted into this program and get to work with us throughout Grade 12. If you’re selected, here’s what you can expect:

  • Gain real life experience and find out what it means to be part of a co-operative organization
  • Get involved and attend District Council meetings
  • Work closely with our District Council Delegates and help govern our credit union
  • Learn valuable leadership and networking skills

To be eligible, you (or your parent/guardian) must be an Affinity Credit Union member. Not a member? It’s not too late – join the better banking movement today!
