The Scholarship Committee, from Gardiner Federal Credit Union, is pleased to announce that they are offering a total of $3,000.00 in Scholarships in 2020.
GFCU is offering six scholarships, in the amount of $500 each, to deserving students who are pursuing post-secondary education or graduate degrees. To be considered for the scholarships, applicants must live, work, worship or attend school in Kennebec County, Lincoln County, or in the towns of Palermo or Richmond, Maine. Applicants must also complete the online application, which consists of a short form detailing their extracurricular activities and community service and two short essay questions.
“We have had winners from graduating high school classes, as well as winners who are already in college. This past year, we actually had a repeat winner.” stated Kelly Marie, Scholarship Committee Member. “The identities of the applicants are masked, so our committee has no idea who the applicants are, when reviewing the applications and reading the essays.”, she continued.
The application is available, under the applications tab, on Gardiner Federal Credit Union’s website: gardinerfcu.org. The deadline to apply is April 30, 2020.
All completed applications will be reviewed by the GFCU Scholarship Committee and the selected recipients will be notified by the second week of May.
