PSECU opened the application period for the 27th year of its annual scholarship program today. The program awards six scholarships, valued at up to $8,000 each, to graduating high school seniors to help reduce the cost of pursuing postsecondary education. Since its inception, the PSECU Scholarship program has awarded more than $750,000 in scholarships to more than 150 students.
“Offering the PSECU Scholarship is a point of pride for us at the credit union,” said PSECU President and CEO George Rudolph. “In addition to providing high-quality banking products and services, outreach like this scholarship really points to the heart of who we are – a member-owned financial institution helping our members and the communities in which they live achieve more.”
Each winner will receive a $2,000-per-year scholarship that is renewable for up to four years based on the fulfillment of set academic requirements, including GPA. The total potential value of each scholarship is $8,000 per student.
“We know the cost of higher education is a burden for many families,” said Karen Rousche, PSECU Community Relations Coordinator. “The PSECU Scholarship exists to help alleviate this and recognize the achievements and accomplishments of our high school members.”
