Two Glendale high schools seniors were among the recipients of Credit Union West’s 2021 Scholarship Program.
In total, the credit union is awarding five $1,000 scholarships to qualified Arizona high school seniors.
Scholarship award recipients include:
“Each year we proudly provide community scholarships for local high school students. Our goal is to lessen the financial burden they may face and help students establish strong financial futures as they pursue their educational goals,” Credit Union West president and CEO Karen Roch stated in a news release. “Congratulations to this year’s scholarship recipients, who exemplified a commitment to furthering their education and improving their communities. We are pleased to support their educational journey.”
Recipients were selected based on academic achievement, community service and overall character. Additionally, applicants were required to write an essay focused on the importance of their personal mission statement.
Each scholarship supports a high school senior who plans to attend a trade school, two-year or four-year college in 2021. Students may use the scholarship to manage the costs associated with pursuing their education, including tuition, class fees, books and other related expenses.
Credit Union West’s corporate center is located at 10150 W. Desert River Blvd., Glendale.
