Xtend Community Scholarship

About the Opportunity

Here at Xtend we don’t mess around. We walk the talk. And when we say our mission is to create an ecosystem of support from which credit unions and members can thrive, we mean it. Our scholarships are were created to hold us to our commitment.

Simply put, our goal is to start new credit unions, help struggling credit unions and spread education within the financial industry on how to start a credit union and how to help start up and struggling credit unions. It’s a mission we don’t take lightly. We believe it’s not only about providing scholarships, or funding an effort, but also seeking out and finding communities that could benefit from a cooperative financial institution. It’s a passion.

If you’re a CUSO, credit union, vendor or or just about any business or person interested in partnership with Xtend, we’ll expect you to join us in this effort. If you’re a future credit union, or even thinking about starting a credit union, call us, we will want to help and we aren’t alone. We have a network of CUSO’s, credit unions and industry professionals who stand along side us in our efforts.

It’s called “The Credit Union Movement” for a reason. Join us, and let’s get moving.

Xtend has two scholarship offerings Financial Relief and De Novo. Financial Relief is for struggling credit unions, looking for financial relief. De Novo is for new credit unions looking to start their journey. Fill out the Application Form below to get started!
