With college costs soaring in California and beyond, The Police Credit Union continues to support our law enforcement members and their families by awarding four $1,000 college scholarships every year to students committed to enhancing their education. Every year, The Police Credit Union provides four of these scholarships to students who prove their academic excellence and contribute to the improvement of their local community.
To be considered for our scholarship, candidates must meet the following criteria:
- Maintain a minimum 3.0 cumulative GPA
- Must be a The Police Credit Union member for at least six months prior to applying for the scholarship
- Must be accepted to or currently attending a full-time undergraduate program of study at a college or university
- The Board of Directors, The Police Credit Union employees, Volunteer Committee members and their families are ineligible, as are previous scholarship winners.
Candidates are judged based on their academic achievements, involvement in community activities, participation in extracurricular activities, work experience, a personal recommendation they must provide, and an essay question they must answer either in writing or via video.
Who Selects the Award Recipients?
The Police Credit Union’s executive staff selects the winners with the Board of Directors’ approval.
