Prince George’s Community FCU Enhances Scholarship Program
The Prince George’s Community Federal Credit Union makes a significant increase to its annual scholarship award amount and extends its application to high school, undergraduate, graduate, and trade school students.
Prince George’s Community Federal Credit Union (PGCFCU) is pleased to announce a unique set of changes to its 2024 annual scholarship program.
PGCFCU will increase the amount of scholarship money awarded from $2,000 to $10,000, and the number of awards will increase from two to four. The scholarship will also now be open to high school, undergraduate, graduate, and trade or vocational students residing or having a home base in Prince George’s County, Maryland. The application will also transition from including a written essay to now requiring an Instagram video essay submission.
“As a pillar of the Prince George’s County community, it was important for the credit union to increase our award amount to support students who must wrestle with the rising costs of higher education. We also decided to be more inclusive of nontraditional and graduate students who are often edged out of receiving scholarship opportunities. The social media element in the submission process was the icing on the cake as we are committed to increasing our growth and reach within the community,” stated PGCFCU Chief Executive Officer Diane Coleman Brown.
