College Scholarships

$1,000 credit union scholarships available

37 seniors will be selected

A higher degree of support

Education is in our name, and we're proud to help high school seniors in our Southeast Texas communities pay for higher education. We award $37,000 in scholarship funds annually, because we understand the value of a degree.

Put your name on our radar.

When it comes to paying college tuition, every scholarship helps. A graduating senior will be selected from each of the 37 high schools in Hardin, Jasper, Jefferson, Newton, Orange and Tyler counties to receive a $1,000 scholarship. To be eligible, make sure you meet these criteria:
  • Be in the top 25% of your class or carry a minimum 3.0 GPA
  • Plan to attend an accredited college or university with a minimum of 12 credit hours the first semester
If you're chosen, you'll receive your scholarship once we confirm you're enrolled.
