The BECU Foundation is accepting applications from student members for its annual scholarships.
This year, the BECU Foundation is recognizing and awarding $2,500 scholarships to full-time high school seniors and undergraduates currently enrolled in an accredited two-year, four-year or technical college or university who play an active role in giving back to their community.
Each awarded scholarship is renewable for two years ($5,000 total). With the help of its business partners, member donations and fundraising activities, BECU awards a minimum of 25 scholarships each year. New for 2020, students pursuing a degree in health care, STEM or trade fields may qualify for a Washington State Opportunity Scholarship worth up to $22,500. The scholarship supports Washington residents on their path to high-demand careers.
In 2019, the BECU Foundation awarded 80 student members either $2,500 or $3,500 scholarships each to use toward their postsecondary programs. Scholarships recognize student members who have demonstrated community service as well as academic and leadership potential. Volunteer activities have included science interpretation for the Pacific Science Center, mentoring elementary students and providing food to homeless youth.
