Congratulations to our 2017 The Police Credit Union Scholarship Award Recipients!
Thank you to everyone who applied for our scholarship this year. The students selected to receive a 2017 The Police Credit Union Scholarship Award have not only achieved academic excellence, but have also strived to make a difference in their communities.
This year we are pleased to announce four Scholarship Award recipients.
Each of our scholarship winners will receive $1,000 to use toward advancing their education. The money will go toward tuition, books and other educational expenses. We wish these students the best of luck in the year to come!
