$1,000 Credit Union Scholarship Winners Announced
The Dort Federal Credit Union Board of Directors has announced the recipients of the 2018-2019 $1,000 student scholarship award. The board of directors received more than 50 applications this year as part of the annual program. Applications were accepted from Dort Federal members who are graduating from high school in 2019 and planning to attend college in the fall, or are currently enrolled in a post-secondary school with full-time status.
New this year, Dort Federal Credit Union increased the number of recipients from seven to ten students. The students were selected based on a variety of criteria including GPA, letters of recommendation and volunteer work. Keeping with the credit union tradition, all applicants were asked to submit a brief essay describing what the credit union philosophy “Being Financially Responsible” means to them.
“We are pleased to honor the academic achievements of these students and show our support for continuing their education. We wish not only the ten 2019 scholarship recipients great success, but all the applicants in pursuing their education and future careers,” said Chairman of the Board Harry Awdish.Go to main navigation
