Any member seeking higher education may apply for Blue Eagle CU scholarships
Roanoke, VA, June 13, 2013 – Blue Eagle Credit Union is pleased to offer the Alexander Scholarship, awarding $1,000 each to 10 deserving members. The scholarship is named in honor of Alec and Doris Alexander, a husband and wife team who spent many years building their credit union with a sound foundation of quality member service and financial integrity that all members of Blue Eagle Credit Union still enjoy today.
“We’re delighted to offer this exceptional opportunity to assist members in their higher education endeavors,” comments CEO Jeff Thompson, “and we open it up to any member seeking higher education, not just high school seniors. Many members beyond your typical college age student are finding themselves back in school in order to remain competitive in the job market.”
Members interested in seeking higher education and meeting the eligibility requirements may apply.
