  • Catherine Foreman (North Carolina) – attending Virginia Commonwealth University
  • Emily Logan (Virginia) – attending Arizona State University

We’re proud of these seven student members and honored to support their pursuit of higher education.”

The Directors’ Memorial Scholarship program was created in 1989 by Chartway’s board members in recognition of the credit union’s success. Since its inception, the credit union has awarded more than $301,000 in scholarships to its student members.
