United Services Credit Union, a local not-for-profit financial institution, is helping its members achieve their dreams of a higher education with their third annual scholarship program. Four credit union members, already attending or admitted to an institution of higher education, will receive a $750.00 scholarship each to be awarded during the credit union’s 54th Annual Membership Meeting on April 20, 2010.
