Delta Community to Award $25,000 in College Scholarships

Credit Union’s 15th Annual Scholarship Program Opens Saturday, Feb. 1, 2020

ATLANTA (Jan. 31, 2020) – Delta Community Credit Union (www.DeltaCommunityCU.com), Georgia's largest credit union with $6 billion in assets, announces a call for entries in its 15th annual scholarship program. Five applicants will be awarded a total of $25,000 based on academic achievement, community involvement and submission of an essay on a subject selected by the Credit Union.

“Each year, Delta Community offers hundreds of free financial education opportunities through our Financial Education Center, and invests heavily in charitable organizations and schools where our members live,” said Delta Community CEO Hank Halter. “We know the positive impact of education on individuals and families, and it is our sincere hope that our scholarship recipients achieve personal and professional success which allows them, in turn, to invest in their own communities.”

The 2020 Delta Community Scholarship Program will provide scholarships to five eligible students seeking a first undergraduate degree. Each $5,000 award may be used to fund tuition, books, housing and other expenses.

This year’s essay topic is based on Delta Community’s success in 2019, and acknowledges the credit union’s 80th anniversary in 2020:

Delta Community recently experienced one of the best years in its 80-year history. The Credit Union is proud that we achieved record growth and led the nation in customer satisfaction. Please share your proudest moment, and how it will propel you toward success in the future.
