At Summit Credit Union, we believe that higher education is important - and that academic achievement should be rewarded. Each year, we give out a number of scholarships to deserving students from the region.

State school or private university, there's nothing inexpensive about attending college these days. Our scholarship program helps the best and the brightest pursue their academic goals.

Most awards are made through the Elizabeth “Sis” Hamilton Scholarship Fund and/or the Carolinas Credit Union Foundation’s Scholarship Program. To be eligible for either of these, applicants must meet at least one of the criteria below.
