The University of Hawaiʻi Federal Credit Union (UHFCU) will award $2,000 scholarships to five members through its inaugural 2016–2017 Scholarship Program. As the university’s credit union, the scholarship endowment will create a lasting legacy—potentially benefiting generations of students as well as the UH System. The new scholarship program is founded under the leadership of the UHFCU Board of Directors.
“UHFCU is deeply committed to the University of Hawaiʻi System and investing in the leaders of tomorrow. Our scholarship program helps us achieve this by recognizing and rewarding young people for their exemplary academic performance and community service,” said President and CEO Jeanine M. Morse. “We hope our scholarships will grant these deserving students the resources they need to achieve their goals and succeed in their future endeavors.”
