All Winners

East River Federal Credit Union is excited to announce six recipients of the 2023 Educational Scholarships. Students awarded the scholarship are members of East River Federal Credit Union who exemplify a commitment to their education and community, as well as leadership qualities.

Scholarships are awarded to students who are enrolling in a university, college or technical school in the fall of 2023 or are currently enrolled. The applicants are evaluated on academic achievement, community involvement, letters of recommendation, and an essay on financial wellness. The winners were chosen through a blind selection process by a volunteer member committee. 

This year ERFCU awarded $1,000 scholarships to the following six members:

  • Hannah Aldridge, of Madison, S.D., Madison High School
  • Ethan Brown, of Madison, S.D., currently attending South Dakota School of Mines and Technology
  • Ayla McDonald, of Wentworth, S.D., Chester High School
  • Jack Neises, of Carthage, S.D., Howard High School
  • Anthony Peters, of Madison, S.D., currently attending South Dakota State University
  • Brycelyn Wolff, of Madison, S.D., Oldham-Ramona High School

East River FCU is committed to the pursuit of higher education and awards scholarships on a yearly basis. Applicants must be a member (not applicant’s parents) in good standing for at least one year. Information for the 2024 scholarship process will be released early next year.
