Credit union announces scholarships

For the 16th year, DuPont Community Credit Union will award $1,000 scholarships to 20 high school seniors at the DCCU Annual Meeting in late April.

A total of $20,000 in scholarships to area students will be awarded at the meeting. The deadline for applications is March 7, 2011.

“DuPont Community Credit Union prides itself in promoting financial education and assisting students in our community,” said Suzie Cook, DCCU‘s vice president of marketing. “This is a concrete way the Credit Union can give something back to the young people and their families in the communities which we serve.”

Eligible high school seniors include those attending public high schools in DCCU’s service area, local private schools and home-schooled students. Students are required to complete a one-page application and write on an assigned essay topic, which is available on the credit union’s website:

Credit union membership is not required to apply for the scholarship.

All applications are to be submitted directly to: DuPont Community Credit Union, Attention: Scholarship Committee, P.O. Box 1365, Waynesboro, VA 22980 or delivered to any office location in Waynesboro, Staunton, Stuarts Draft, Verona, Harrisonburg, or Woodstock.
