Delta Community Announces Call for Entries in Annual Scholarship Program

$20,000 in College Scholarships to be Awarded to Outstanding Students

ATLANTA (March 1, 2019) – Delta Community Credit Union (, Georgia's largest credit union with $5.8 billion in assets, announces a call for entries in its annual scholarship program. Five applicants will be awarded a total of $20,000 based on academic achievement, community involvement and submission of an essay on a subject selected by the Credit Union.

“We know education makes a meaningful difference in building healthy individuals, families and communities,” said Delta Community CEO Hank Halter. “We hope those students who benefit from our scholarship program will achieve personal and professional success so they can make a positive difference, in turn, in their own communities.”

The 2019 Delta Community Scholarship Program will award three $5,000 and two $2,500 scholarships to eligible students seeking their first undergraduate degree. It provides funds to cover tuition, books, housing and other expenses. Delta Community’s focus on young adults inspired this year’s essay topic:

At Delta Community, we established our Financial Education Center to empower our members with knowledge they can use no matter where they are in their financial lives. How do you see financial education working in your favor now and in your future endeavors?

All scholarship applications must be received by March 31, 2019 by 11:59 p.m. ET and winners will be notified and announced by May 3, 2019.
