SECU Scholarships Available

The State Employees’ Credit Union members are pleased to announce the renewal of the 2017 SECU Foundation “People Helping People” High School and Community College Scholarship program, allocating more than $5 million for North Carolina’s college-bound students. Since launching the program thirteen years ago, the member-funded SECU Foundation has made a cumulative investment to date of nearly $57 million, demonstrating a steadfast commitment to helping thousands of students fulfill their educational goals. The high school program has two facets of funding – a $10,000 four-year college scholarship to a graduating senior from each of the regular public high schools and three charter schools in the state, as well as a $5,000 two-year scholarship to a graduating senior from each of the early college and cooperative innovative high schools in North Carolina. Each scholarship is awarded for study at one of the 17 constituent campuses in the University of North Carolina System.  Community college funding provides two $5,000 scholarships to each of the State’s 58 community colleges. Recipients are chosen by each school’s scholarship selection committee based on a candidate’s embodiment of the credit union philosophy of “People Helping People,” recognizing leadership, excellence of character, integrity and community involvement, along with an overall academic grade point average of 2.5 or higher. For more information, contact 919-839-5562.
