Recipients are selected by the Scholarship Selection Committee. The Scholarship Selection Committee must use the following criteria to award the SECU Foundation "People Helping People" Scholarships. The criteria have been designed to give the committee maximum flexibility in awarding the scholarship.

These scholarships are distributed semi-annually in two payments: fall semester, $1,250 per student; and spring semester, $1,250 per student for a maximum of four (4) consecutive semesters.

The committee will recognize the individual most deserving of an opportunity to attend college. There is no formal application process. The committee will consider students who best exemplify the membership philosophy of credit unions, "People Helping People, and have demonstrated leadership, excellence of character, integrity, and community involvement.

The recipient will be selected without regard to race, sex, color, creed, religious preference, age, national origin or disability. Preference will be given to students whose parents or guardians and family members are public sector employees who live and work in North Carolina. Information for the scholarship is available through the financial aid office.
