As Jefferson Financial Federal Credit Union’s footprint grows, so does its effort to give back to the communities it serves – hence why its board of directors recently voted to increase the number of scholarships the credit union awards annually from 12 to 20.
The Peter C. Bertucci Scholarship is the credit union’s flagship scholastic honor, awarding $1,000 each to selected graduating high school seniors who exemplify well-rounded students poised for academic success. Each recipient’s school and sponsoring teacher receives $300 and $100, respectively.
The 2019-20 application period opens Sept. 1 and will be available at JeffersonFinancial.org.
