SECU’s 2018 Scholarship Program Now Accepting Applications

Scholarship Program expands to include Donald Tynes, Sr. Scholarships for Morgan State University Students

As part of our ongoing commitment to higher education, SECU has opened our 2018 Scholarship Program, offering scholarships to eligible SECU members and their families through the SECU MD Foundation.

The program includes three categories of scholarships:
  • The State Employee Scholarships, which are available to Maryland State employees and their immediate family members who are planning to attend college, graduate school, or trade school in the fall of 2018.
  • The SECU-University System of Maryland (USM) Scholarships, which offers scholarships to SECU members who are enrolled or accepted into a University System of Maryland institution for the fall 2018 semester.
  • The recently announced Donald Tynes, Sr. Scholarships, which offer five $2,000 scholarships to students enrolled in Morgan State University’s Graves School of Business.

The new SECU MD Foundation will oversee the 2018 Scholarship Program. The SECU MD Foundation was recently launched by SECU as a charitable organization whose mission is to contribute to and support the continuous learning and educational needs in the communities served by SECU.

“Through the SECU MD Foundation, SECU remains fully committed to helping our members to become stronger and financially healthier, and ultimately to achieve their dreams, one member and one household at a time,” says Rod Staatz, President and CEO of SECU. Staatz notes that, to date, SECU and the SECU MD Foundation have awarded more than $480,000 in higher education scholarships.

The SECU MD Foundation will accept applications for these scholarships on their website at through April 6. The full eligibility and application requirements can also be found there.
