Each year, Seven Seventeen Credit Union awards five $1,000 college scholarships to graduating high school seniors.
One scholarship is awarded to each of the following universities: the University of Akron; Kent State University, main campus; Kent State University, Trumbull Campus; Kent State University, Stark Campus; and Youngstown State University.
Each university chooses its scholarship recipient, based on the applicants grade point average, school and community involvement, and letters of recommendation.
Applications and procedures for applying are now available at all SSCU offices, including the Kent office at 1620 S. Water St., and in the guidance office of area high schools.
The recipient of the scholarship award, or one of the recipients parents, must be a member of Seven Seventeen Credit Union to qualify for the scholarship.
