Utilities Employees Credit Union (UECU), a national financial institution primarily serving the utility and energy industries, has increased its annual scholarship for utility families to $3,000. The Credit Union offers the scholarship to help students pursuing post-secondary education.
College-bound high school students as well as those attending college, who’ve completed volunteer work in 2018 or 2019, are encouraged to submit an entry to the Credit Union by May 6, 2019. Applicants can apply for Credit Union membership and download the scholarship submission requirements by clicking here.
The service-oriented scholarship mirrors the Credit Union’s “People Helping People,” philosophy. For 85 years, UECU has been helping utility employees, and their families save on loans, grow their savings, and conveniently manage their finances. Students and young adults getting ready to launch their careers benefit from the Credit Union’s special financing options for first-time borrowers, free checking, free mobile services and cash back rewards. UECU also offers students and their families a better way to pay for college with fixed and variable rate private student loans.
Credit Union membership is a lifetime benefit, so no matter where students move to, their membership stays with them. Whether they go to school in their home state, move across the country or travel abroad, they can easily access their accounts, apply for a loan, or speak with a dedicated member services specialist.
