College Scholarship Program

Group of students


We offer college scholarships to our members every year through our own Elizabeth "Sis" Hamilton Scholarship Fund and then, additionally, through the Carolinas Credit Union Foundation's Scholarship Program.

In addition to scholarships offered by Summit Credit Union, specific scholarships are separately available to the following:

  • Employees (or their immediate family) working at United Chemi-Con Manufacturing Company in Lansing, NC, or Barker Microfarads in Hillsville, VA.
  • Any member (or their immediate family) of Oxford Credit Union, who lives or works in Granville County, NC.
  • Employees (or their immediate family) working at any of the plants served by Century Employees Savings Fund Credit Union at the time of the merger with Summit CU, including, but not limited to, Century Furniture, Hancock & Moore, and Valdese Weavers.

To be eligible to apply, you must be a member of Summit Credit Union or one of our affiliate Credit Unions. The scholarship applicant must have his/her own account; being joint on another member's account does not qualify.

  • High school seniors and above may apply.
  • Applications are available on this page each year beginning in October.
  • Applicants will be notified of results in April and funds will be sent directly to the school of the student's choice in July.
  • Students may apply in multiple years and be granted scholarships in multiple years.
  • Scholarships generally vary from $500 to $2,000.

The deadline to apply for our scholarship program is Saturday, February 1, 2020.
