Harrisburg, PA (April 30, 2020) – Pennsylvania’s largest credit union, PSECU, announced today the  winners of its 24th annual scholarship program. Each year, the program awards six scholarships - valued up to $8,000 each for a total of $48,000 - to graduating high school seniors to help reduce the financial burden of pursuing postsecondary education.

“Education is a pillar of our community outreach at PSECU. From providing financial education resources through our WalletWorks program and new Online Learning Center, to offering scholarships for students to pursue their dreams through college, we understand the importance of education in obtaining financial success,” said PSECU Consumer Education Strategist Sara Weiser, who oversees the credit union’s scholarship program. “Since we started our scholarship program in 1997, we’ve disbursed more than $686,000 in scholarships to 137 students. That is something we’re very proud of because we know that it has helped young students find opportunity, reach their goals, and prepare for the future.” 

Of the 495 applications PSECU received through its online application process this year, the following winners were selected (alphabetical order by last name):
