The State Employees Credit Union (SECU) Foundation is offering a Continuing Education scholarship to North Carolina residents who are pursuing a short-term training program that leads to a state-regulated or industry-recognized credential.
The SECU established the Continuing Education scholarship program to aid students to learn or update career-related skills.
The SECU and the NC Community College System (including COA) joined efforts to provide the scholarship, helping the state and northeast region’s citizens with career and job training. The program will help produce and sustain a high quality workforce for North Carolina.
The maximum scholarship award is $750. Five scholarships will be awarded for Fall 2014 and five additional scholarships for Spring 2015. Funds may be used for registration fees, books, certification tests, course supplies, and other expenses such as travel to and from classes.
As a condition of the award, scholarship recipients must consent to the release of their names and images for publications written/distributed by the System Office, College of The Albemarle, and/or the State Employees’ Credit Union and its Foundation.
The priority application deadline for Fall semester is Sept. 3, 2014.
