    Carl R. Young Memorial Scholarship

    Every spring, Dinero Teens members who are graduating juniors or seniors are eligible to apply for a chance to win one of four $2,500 scholarships. Named in memory of our longtime board member and volunteer, Carl R. Young, our hope is that this scholarship helps Advancial's young members succeed the way that Carl helped our credit union for so many years. Carl’s dedication and commitment to Advancial and our members was a vital part of our growth and success. His wisdom and long-term perspective helped guide and shape Advancial through many transitional moments in our history, and with this scholarship we honor his contributions and his memory.

    This contest is designed to allows them to show their creativity and passions for a chance at earning cash for college.
