State Employee's Credit Union Scholarship



The time to apply for this year's State Employee's Credit Union's $10,000 scholarship has arrived! To be eligible for the scholarship the student or their parent should be a member or eligible to be a member of the State Employee's Credit Union. The student should also be attending one of the 16 UNC system universities, have a gpa of a 2.5 or higher unweighted, and demonstrate leadership, excellence of character, integrity and community involvement. The student also must file a FAFSA (Federal Application for Student Aid) as part of the application.


This year the scholarship committee will interview students for the one scholarship recipient from Athens Drive. There will also be another nominee submitted to the LEA (Wake County Schools) for an additional scholarship at large that is selected from the surrounding high schools. 


Students will need to submit the completed application. In addition, students should submit one recommendation letter from someone who can speak to their community involvement  (no family members please). The recommendation is due at the same time as the application.


Deadline to submit the application is February 19, 2019 by 3pm in Student Services. Applications must be typed in a word document and printed for submission.


For questions please contact Mrs. Telfair or Ms. Boothe in Student Services.
