Delta Community Credit Union is now calling for entries in its annual scholarship program, according to a Metro Atlanta CEO article.
“As our scholarship program enters its 13th year, we are extremely proud of the impact this investment continues to have,” said Delta Community CEO Hank Halter. “We know education makes a meaningful difference in building healthy individuals, families and communities.”
Five applicants will be awarded a total of $20,000 this year. Three applicants will receive $5,000 each and two will receive $2,500 each, which may cover tuition, books, housing and other expenses.
Prizes will be based on academic achievement, community involvement and submission of an essay on the following topic:
“Delta Community realizes the importance of investing in technology to provide our members with the tools they need to succesfully manage their finances. How do you see changes in technology impacting your education and financial future?”
All scholarship applications must be received by March 31 and winners will be notified and announced by May 11. Applicants must be Delta Community members enrolled full-time at an accredited college or university in the United states during the fall semester of the 2018 – 2019 school year.
“It is our sincere hope that students who benefit from our scholarships will achieve personal and professional success, so they can make a positive difference, in turn, in their own communities,” Halter said.
