Shippensburg University’s Student Government Association (SGA) is partnering with the Pennsylvania State Employees Credit Union (PSECU) to provide a select number of SU students with scholarships next semester.
PSECU has sponsored SGA’s scholarships for the past several years, and received 47 applicants for next semester, according to Student Government Treasurer Raven Francis. Of the 47 applicants, 15 will be awarded $500 scholarships.
Individuals interested in applying needed to be SU students who planned on returning for the spring semester, as well as active PSECU members. Each student also needed to write an essay of 150 words or less on the changes students would like to see happen with the change in leadership at SU.
The scholarship applicants will be notified on Dec. 8 as to whether they will be receiving a scholarship for the spring semester.
