WSECU will award $50,000 in scholarship assistance this spring
Jan. 14, 2013 (Olympia, WA) - WSECU is currently seeking applications from its credit union members for the cooperative's annual college scholarship program.
Available only to WSECU members, the scholarships can be used for nearly any accredited college program. WSECU will award 27 college scholarships this year including approximately twenty $2,000 scholarships for students pursuing a four-year or graduate degree and approximately seven $1,000 scholarships for two-year or vocational school students. WSECU reserves the right to adjust the number of awards based on its applications in each category. In total, $50,000 will be awarded this year.
WSECU's scholarship program is administered by Scholarship Management Services, a division of Scholarship America. Easy-to-use online applications are available at: scholarshipamerica.org/wsecu/.
WSECU scholarship applications and supporting materials are available now and must be submitted by March 4, 2013.
The credit union's Scholarship Committee, comprised of board members, employees and credit union members will evaluate finalist applicants using a range of criteria including academic record, financial need and a personal essay. Membership in a credit union other than WSECU does not meet eligibility requirements. Recipients will be announced in late spring.
Founded by 40 state employees in 1957, WSECU now has more than $1.7 billion in assets, 17 branches and 170,000 members. Additional information is available at wsecu.org.
