MD/DC Credit Union Foundation Scholarship Competition Concludes

Nine Freedom Members competed, out of almost 500 entries!

The CU Foundation MD/DC has concluded its 2016 Credit Union College Scholarship Competition. Twelve $1,000 scholarships were awarded in three categories; essay, video and photography.

Nearly 500 applications were submitted by members of over 70 MD – and DC – based credit unions. Submissions were scored by a group of 111 volunteer judges.  Nine Freedom members entered the essay competition, but with stiff competition none garnered enough points to win a scholarship. Thanks to those members who took the time and effort to enter this year’s Competition!

The Credit Union College Scholarship Competition is a yearly event for the CU Foundation of MD/DC . Look for another Completion with another topic in spring of 2017.
