The Shippensburg University Student Government Association (SGA) and Pennsylvania State Employees Credit Union (PSECU) are partnering to offer scholarships to eight students.
Applications are now available at the PSECU e-Center. The application process includes submitting an essay of 150 words or fewer on “How do you define student success? How would this scholarship help you achieve it?”
SGA Treasurer Raven Francis encourages students to apply for the scholarship.
“It’s a great opportunity, which will help our students,” she said.
SGA offers various scholarship opportunities throughout the year, including the bookstore scholarship offered at the beginning of each semester.
“It’s a great way to interact with students and give back,” Francis said.
Up to eight students have the opportunity to each receive $500.
To be eligible for the scholarship, applicants must be SU undergraduate students with an active PSECU member account. The application deadline is March 8.
Scholarship applications and essays will only be accepted in person at the PSECU e-Center, Ceddia Union Building Room 22. The PSECU e-Center is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Applications will be reviewed during spring break, and winners will be notified by March 25.
Winners will be presented their awards at the March 28 public SGA meeting, which is streamed on The Slate’s Facebook page and held in CUB Room 119 at 4 p.m.
