The Scient Credit Union Foundation was formed in December 2009 to help further the credit union philosophy of “People Helping People” and allow Scient Federal Credit Union to be effective in our efforts to give back to our communities and members. Our main mission is to promote education and recognize high academic excellence through the awarding of scholarships to individual Scient Federal Credit Union members. Scholarships are awarded to graduating high-school seniors who have been accepted into a full-time program of study at an accredited university, college or trade school and have demonstrated academically strong behavior, and exemplified leadership at school and in their community. Scholarship winners are announced at our Annual Meeting each May.
The Foundation is overseen by a Board of Trustees and is funded by member donations and various credit union fundraising activities and events.
Since 2011, The Scient Credit Union Foundation has proudly awarded over $30,000 in scholarships to these well-deserving young Scient members—the leaders of our future.
Visit our Scholarships section for more information on Scient’s annual scholarships. Applications for our annual scholarships are available each February. Winners are notified each April and are awarded their scholarships at our Annual Meeting.
