North Island Credit Union invites college‐bound students in San Diego County to
submit an application in its annual College Scholarship Program. Through the program, the credit union provides
$20,000 in scholarships to recognize exceptional students who are active in both their schools and the communities,
giving back to others through service and volunteer work.
San Diego area college‐bound high school seniors and community college students transferring to a four‐year university
who maintain a minimum grade point average of 3.0 and plan to attend an accredited college or university in the coming
year are eligible to participate. Selection criteria include academic performance, school or community involvement, a
letter of recommendation, and an essay submission.
“We encourage local students to participate in our scholarship program to help them pursue their educational goals,”
said California Credit Union CEO Steve O’Connell. “We know the cost of higher education can be a challenge for many
families, and we are proud to double the number of scholarships we are offering this year. We look forward to reviewing
the many stories of inspiration in our scholarship applications.”
Interested students can find more information and apply online at northisland.ccu.com/scholarship. The application
deadline is March 16, 2018. Recipients will be announced on April 6.
The Annual College Scholarship program was created in 2005 to recognize outstanding students within its local
communities. Since the creation of the program, the credit union has awarded more than $275,000 in scholarships. This
year, the program was expanded to award a total of 20 scholarships for $1,000 each.
