Merck Employees Federal Credit Union’s strong tradition of assisting young people in attaining higher education continues.
The credit union has awarded $5,000 scholarships to five students to assist in their first year of college. The winners were selected based on a number of criteria, including academic performance, extra curricular activities, an essay and other. This year’s winners are Helen Wei, Connie Liu, Christina Zhao, Rachel Peverly and Matthew Zhao.
“Congratulations to the winners. They all demonstrated tremendous aptitude as students and we wish them all the best on their higher education pursuits,” said MEFCU President Paul Gentile.
This is just one of the many ways that the credit union helps guide members down the path of financial success. The credit union is a great resource for young people headed to college, offering an array of remote banking products.
