(CNS Local Life): A new group of students recently received funds under this year’s Cayman Islands Civil Service Association Co-operative Credit Union annual educational grant programme. A total of about $200,000 was presented to 166 students chosen out of 209 applicants. The grants come in various amounts.

“The Credit Union differs from other financial institutions in that we put our members first,” said Michael Nixon, chairman of the Credit Union’s board of directors. “We provide affordable financial services and significant opportunities for lifestyle advancement to all of our members.

The annual educational grant programme exemplifies our core value proposition of ‘Members Helping Members’, and allows us to provide real help to students and their families, assisting them to achieve their educational goals.”

Patricia Estwick, Credit Union’s CEO, added, “Community support lies at the heart of our core values. Our priority is to provide Credit Union’s members and by extension, our community, with the resources needed to achieve success in their lives.”

Credit Union members, in good standing, or their children, pursuing post-secondary studies locally, overseas or online, can apply for an educational grant. Recipients are selected based on their academic record, character references, area of study and level of community involvement.
