DCCU Announces Annual Scholarship Program

DuPont Community Credit Union (DCCU) is excited to once again offer its scholarship program to area students. DCCU will award a $1,000 scholarship to the following:

  • One graduating senior at each of the 28 high schools in our membership area 
  • One graduating senior attending private school, is home schooled or is a DCCU member living outside of our membership area
  • One adult student pursuing an associate or bachelor's degree
  • One student pursuing a master's or doctoral degree
  • One student attending a technical school pursuing certification/licensure training

A total of $32,000 in scholarships will be awarded. DCCU has awarded close to $300,000 in scholarships since the inception of the program in 1995.

Applicants are asked to write a 750-1000 word essay based on the following two questions:

  • What do you think are the most important banking products and services you will need access to during college and why?
  • How can DCCU help young adults with their banking needs during the college years and beyond?

The deadline for applications is Monday, March 5, 2018. The application and essay can be completed online, and the applicant is required to complete the assignment on their own.  If the applicant does not have internet access, they may visit a DCCU office to complete the requirements. Scholarship winners will be determined by Friday, March 31, 2018 and notified by mail shortly after.
