The SECU MD Foundation supports several local scholarships


SECU MD Foundation Scholarships

The SECU MD Foundation's mission is to contribute to and support the continuous learning and educational needs of members in the communities served by SECU, Maryland's largest credit union. One of the primary ways we are able to accomplish this is through the SECU MD Foundation Scholarship Program, which has awarded more than $465,000 to over 180 individuals. We currently offer scholarship programs for State Employees and their Families, the University System of Maryland, and the Graves School of Business at Morgan State University. Please select the scholarships listed below to learn more.
