Louis M. Brown/Cinfed Credit Union Memorial Scholarship

Since 2000, Cinfed has awarded more than $200,000 in scholarships to help local students cover the cost of their college educations. The scholarships honor the late Louis M. Brown, who served on Cinfed's board of directors for 40 years, holding the position of president for 30 years.

Through his leadership and commitment to serving members' financial needs, Cinfed experienced long-term growth and stability. A graduate of Xavier University, Mr. Brown believed deeply in the power of education, so Cinfed established these scholarships in his memory. 

Fourteen $1,000 scholarships will be awarded this year at Cinfed's Annual Meeting in June.
