California Credit Union has awarded 10 scholarships of $1,000 each to college-bound students in Los Angeles County through its annual College Scholarship Program. Through the program, California Credit Union recognizes exceptional students throughout the greater Los Angeles area who are active in both their schools and the communities, giving back to others through service and volunteer work.

The 2020 California Credit Union scholarship recipients in Los Angeles County include Brendan Harvey of Crescenta Valley High School.

“We are honored to support these exceptional students and community members as they move to the next level in their education, particularly during this challenging time,” said California Credit Union CEO Steve O’Connell. “We received a number of outstanding applications, which were inspiring to all of us. As a credit union founded to serve the education community, we are proud to support this next generation of leaders, and wish them the best of luck in their college career.”

Eligible to be considered are college-bound high school seniors and community college students transferring to a four-year university who maintain a minimum grade point average of 3.0 and plan to attend an accredited college or university in the coming year. This year, California Credit Union’s Scholarship Program received over 780 applications, which were reviewed by a Scholarship Committee consisting of credit union staff who selected the award recipients.

The California Credit Union Annual College Scholarship program was created in 2005 to recognize outstanding students within its local communities. Since the creation of the program, the credit union has awarded more than $335,000 in scholarships to students across Los Angeles and San Diego counties.
