The SECU Foundation High School Scholarship is available to graduating public high school seniors who are either members of SECU or eligible for membership through a parent or guardian. Funded by credit union members, the $10,000 "People Helping People" Scholarship recognizes the recipient's community involvement, leadership, character and integrity, as well as scholastic achievement. The funds are provided for tuition and university approved educational expenses over eight consecutive semesters. High school scholarships awarded for the 2018 academic year represent a $4.35 million investment in the educational goals of college-bound students.
