Aggieland Credit Union awards a $1,000 scholarship each year to a Bryan High School graduate who chooses to attend Texas A&M University.
Belvoir Federal Credit Union, Woodbridge, Va., and GEICO partnered in 2012 to award $4,000 in scholarships to a graduating high school senior and a continuing education student. Applicants were asked to answer three questions asking why someone would choose to conduct their finances at a credit union over a bank, how the financial assistance would aid them in attaining their goals and what products/services they would improve from Belvoir Federal’s current product line. The recipients of the 2012 Belvoir Federal/GEICO scholarships were Brittney Canada and Jamie Chichester. Canada, a graduating high school senior, plans to attend Virginia State University, where she will pursue a degree in child psychology. Chichester, a continuing education student, is attending Virginia Commonwealth University to pursue a career in biomedical engineering.
