Community Involvement

William Armstrong Scholarship

Northeast Community Credit Union believes in supporting the students who wish to further their education beyond high school. Each year the credit union awards 5 high school seniors (one from each local high school in Carter County/Elizabethton) with a $500 scholarship. They receive a medallion and a certificate along with recognition at their school's awards ceremony. Students must submit an essay along with their application. Applications and essays are accepted January through March. Click here to print the scholarship application form.

Helping Teachers Teach Grant

The teacher submits an application describing the needs of the classroom and how the funds will be used. Applications are accepted all year long, but the teacher must be a member of the credit union to receive the funds. Click here to print the Helping Teachers Teach application.
