Schools Financial Credit Union Education Scholarship

About the Sponsor

Schools Financial Credit Union was founded in 1933 by seven teachers who pooled five dollars each for the purpose of creating a savings cooperative from which low-cost loans could be made to members. From that humble beginning, Schools Financial Credit Union grew to provide credit union services to an entire educational community of teachers, counselors, janitors, cooks, etc. Four years ago, it opened its membership to any resident of Sacramento County and the nine surrounding counties. Schools Financial now provides banking services to over 112,000 members.

Because of its early commitment to the educational community, Schools Financial Credit Union has established this scholarship to provide assistance to students who are seeking to become educators. Preference is given to those individuals who will give back to the community by serving in schools with large populations of students from underrepresented populations.
