SECU Foundation “People Helping People” Scholarship
Members of the State Employees’ Credit Union established the “People Helping People” four-year scholarship program to assist North Carolina public high school students attend college. The State Employees’ Credit Union (SECU) Foundation takes an active role in assisting communities across North Carolina and truly believes in “people helping people”! Each North Carolina traditional public high school will receive one scholarship valued at $10,000 for a senior to attend one of the 16 constituent campuses of the University of North Carolina. Although the SECU Scholarship Program wishes to recognize academic achievement, the “People Helping People” Scholarship has a much broader purpose; recognizing leadership, integrity and community involvement.
Preference will be to students whose parents or guardians and family members are public sector employees who live and work in North Carolina. Scholarship recipients in good academic standing will be able to receive the scholarship up to a maximum of eight consecutive semesters at the same university. Students selected should not be the recipient of other large scholarships.
All graduating seniors meeting the stated criteria will be eligible for consideration. The criteria have been designed to give the Scholarship Selection Committee maximum flexibility in awarding the scholarship. The local Scholarship Selection Committee will recognize the individual in the senior graduating class most deserving of an opportunity to attend college. The recipient will be selected without regard to race, sex, color, creed, religious preference, age, national origin or disability.
