SECU supports financial and scholastic education.

While many institutions have reduced their community involvement, SECU has remained fully committed to helping our communities become stronger and financially healthier, one member and one household at a time.

As part of that commitment we are pleased to sponsor the SECU State Employee Scholarship.

Over the past eight years, SECU has given over $210,000 in scholarships to Maryland state employees and their family members who attend college, graduate school or trade school.


2015 SECU State Employee Scholarship

SECU is pleased to announce that we will once again be offering scholarships to Maryland state employees and their family members who will attend college, graduate school, or trade school in the fall of 2015. Scholarship amounts will vary and will be based on a graded essay or video submission. Eligibility will be verified. You can apply now through April 10, 2015. Winners will be announced by May 12.

Essays and video submissions should address the following topic:

Explain your understanding of the difference between a credit union and a bank. What do you see as the benefits of being a member of a credit union as opposed to being a customer of a bank? How do you see a credit union making a difference in your financial future?
