At SMCU, we believe that higher education is one of the surest ways to achieve financial wellness. That's why we offer two college scholarships each year. This year we've increased the amount to $5,000 each, to help graduating high school seniors cover the high costs of tuition, housing, books, and meals.

Winners will be announced and recognized at SMCU's Annual Meeting on Thursday, May 21, 2020.
