Savannah, Ga – Georgia Heritage Federal Credit Union (GHFCU) is proud to announce the launch of its 2022 GHFCU Scholarship Program.
“Each year, we look forward to giving back to our local communities through our annual scholarship program. In living out our mission ‘making a positive difference for our members and the communities we serve,’ we know that investing in the futures of our youth is a direct investment into our communities, as the impact of a college degree extends far beyond the individual,” stated Georgia Heritage President and CEO Dale Taratuta. “We are grateful for the opportunity to continue giving back to the communities we serve.”
This year, GHFCU will award two college scholarships – a $2,000 first-place prize and a $1,500 second-place prize. The online application process will open to high school seniors and will close April 5. As part of the submission process, applicants will be required to submit a video that showcases their creativity and commitment to the community.
“As our high school seniors begin making final decisions related to where they may attend college, we hope they will take advantage of this opportunity through applying online. In addition to improving financial literacy, we are excited to further assist those who will be continuing their education next Fall. I look forward to learning more about the academic achievements, leadership, and service of our students through the submissions process,” added Taratuta.
