In honor of its 90th anniversary, Utilities Employees Credit Union (UECU) is celebrating the power of community with an inspirational scholarship contest. The PA-based credit union is asking scholarship applicants to answer one important question: How would you make a positive impact in your community with $1,000? Students can submit a written essay, a video, or a presentation with their answers. After the contest deadline of May 27, 2024, two winners will be selected, and each will be awarded a $3,000 academic scholarship and a $500 prize. The prize money is theirs to use towards putting their ideas into action in their communities.

The scholarship contest is open to UECU members and Pennsylvania residents. Through a partnership with the Pennsylvania American Consumer Council (PACC), students who live or attend school in Pennsylvania can join the credit union and apply for the scholarship.
