With college costs soaring in California and beyond, SFPCU continues to support our members and their families by awarding $1,000 college scholarships every year to students committed to enhancing their education. Every year, SFPCU provides four of these scholarships to students who prove their academic excellence and contribute to the improvement of their local community.
The 2015 Scholarship application period has ended. 2015 Scholarship Award Recipients will be notified no later than June 30, 2015 and will be asked to submit a photo of themselves to appear in the APB newsletter. Awards will be directly deposited into the winners' SFPCU accounts in July 2015.
To be considered for an SFPCU scholarship, candidates must meet the following criteria:
- Maintain a minimum 3.0 cumulative GPA
- Must be an SFPCU member for at least six months prior to applying for the scholarship
- Must be accepted to or currently attending a full-time undergraduate program of study at a college or university
- The Board of Directors, SFPCU employees, Volunteer Committee members and their families are ineligible, as are previous scholarship winners.
Candidates will be judged based on their academic achievements, involvement in community activities, participation in extracurricular activities, work experience, a personal recommendation they must provide, and an essay question they must answer.
Who Selects the Award Recipients?
SFPCU’s executive staff will select the winners with the Board of Directors’ approval.
