The SECU MD Foundation has proudly supported members furthering their education for over 18 years through our annual scholarship program. Since the program’s inception, we’ve awarded over $1 million in scholarships.

This year, we are focusing our scholarship program on community college students. With lower tuition rates, community colleges are a popular choice for students who want to earn their college degree but struggle with the high tuition costs of a four-year university. But while 80% of community college students nationwide say they want to transfer to a university to earn their bachelor's degree, only 31% of them actually do. The high cost of college tuition is often cited as a barrier.

To help community college students continue their educational journeys, we are awarding $10,000 scholarships to 12 students currently attending any of Maryland's 16 community colleges who are transferring to a University System of Maryland university for the 2024-2025 academic year. We look forward to awarding $120,000 in scholarships in 2024 and helping this new batch of scholars.
