suncoast scholars: regional credit union awards scholarships to seniors
When Tampa-based Suncoast Credit Union wanted a turn-key way to award scholarships to high school seniors in their 21-county service territory, they formed a partnership with Consortium to make it happen through their local education foundation network.
The local award process was facilitated by education foundations with each focusing on candidates meeting Suncoast’s criteria of demonstrated financial need and strong academic performance. Local Suncoast representatives are invited to join in celebrating the chosen recipients in their school district through each participating local education foundation.
Each year deserving students receive $2,000 toward tuition and expenses at an accredited Florida 4-year college/university, 2-year college or technical school to jump start their postsecondary career.
