Scholarships

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. SECU has given over $300,000 in scholarships to members who attend college, graduate school, or trade school.


As part of that commitment we are pleased to sponsor the SECU State Employee Scholarship and the Marge Kenney Memorial Scholarship. You can apply now through March 31, 2017. Winners will be announced in May 2017. Scholarship amounts will vary and will be based on a graded essay or video submission. Eligibility for each scholarship will be verified.

Please review the information below to see which scholarships you qualify to apply for.
