SCHOLARSHIPS FOR HIGH SCHOOL SENIORS
As a not-for-profit credit union, PSECU was founded on the belief that everyone deserves opportunities for a better life. PSECU's scholarship program helps graduating high school seniors reduce the financial burden of pursuing post-secondary education. Six scholarships, each up to $8,000, are available to members graduating high school in 2021. If you know a high school senior who meets this criteria, please share this application link with them: https://www.psecu.com/scholarships. As an employee of Kutztown University, members of your household are eligible to join PSECU if you are also a member. Apply for membership at www.psecu.com/students. High school seniors can become members by Dec. 31, 2020, to be eligible for the scholarship.
