Scholarship Program

The SECU MD Foundation has proudly supported members furthering their education for over 17 years through our annual scholarship program. Since the program’s inception, we’ve awarded over $930,000 to more than 300 scholars. This year, the program will surpass $1 million in scholarship awards to our members!
Members who are attending a college or university, community college, or trade school for their undergraduate, post-graduate, or certificate program for the 2023-2024 academic year are encouraged to apply.

Applying for a SECU MD Foundation Scholarship

Applications are now closed for the 2024 SECU MD Foundation Scholarship Program.


All applicants must be a SECU member to apply. If your child needs to open their SECU account, please visit our SECU website for more information about how to open an account or make an appointment with your closest Financial Center.

Applicants will need to complete an application and will be asked to write a 500 – 750 word essay on a pre-determined essay prompt.

All applicants will be notified of the status of their scholarship application by mid-June each year.

The amount awarded for scholarships changes each year, but 12 students will receive $10,000 each in 2024.

This Scholarship Program is made possible through contributions from generous donors who believe in empowering access to education. If you would like to support this program, we invite you to make a donation.
