Carolinas foundation completes scholarship cycle
RALEIGH, N.C. (7/16/12)--The Carolinas Credit Union Foundation has awarded 58 students $63,900 in scholarships--along with $119,000 awarded separately by Local Government FCU, Raleigh, N.C.

"It's such a 'foundational,' if you'll pardon the pun, function of what we do but it doesn't get talked about much," John P. McGrail, president/CEO of the foundation told the North Carolina Credit Union League (The Weekly Conversation July 13).

"We have credit unions and the foundation aiding students across the state reach [to] their academic dreams. In the application process we have them discuss credit union principles and how they can apply to their own lives. Who knows? I hope we could be building some of our movement's future leaders," McGrail said.

North Carolina credit unions interested in building a designated scholarship fund can contact the foundation, which manages the scholarship funds and issues checks to designated schools.
