— Maryland’s largest financial cooperative, SECU awarded 13 scholarships as part of its annual State Employee Scholarship Program at a ceremony at Towson University’s SECU Arena recently.

To be eligible for SECU’s State Employee Scholarship Program, students had to be Maryland state employees or members of the immediate families of Maryland state employees. Winners had to be enrolled or accepted into a college, university, trade, or technical school. Twelfth graders who plan to attend college next fall were also eligible.

“The State Employee Scholarship Program reflects SECU’s continuing commitment to financial and scholastic education, as well as the special relationship SECU has always enjoyed with state employees,” says Peggy Young, Vice President of Marketing at SECU.

According to Young, SECU has awarded more than $210,000 in scholarships over the past seven years to Maryland state employees and family members participating in the State Employee Scholarship Program. For a complete list of all winners, visit https://www.secumd.org/community/scholarships.aspx.
