BCU Financial strongly believes that supporting our youth is an important part of building a prosperous future for our community. BCU scholarships are presented to students who have distinguished themselves with excellent university assessments and are devoted to public work. The awards not only recognize the impressive academic achievements of deserving students, but also recognize the important work these students make in their local communities. These students are dedicated not only to preserving their Ukrainian culture, but also to celebrating and promoting their heritage through volunteer work with various youth organizations, churches, and other community organizations.
