Harrisburg, PA (January 10, 2019) Belco Community Credit Union is committed to supporting its members through programs that benefit the community-at-large. In 2019, Belco is offering $5,000 in scholarships to those pursuing higher education, and is now accepting applications. Belco will award five $1,000 scholarships: three to graduating high school seniors, and two to members who are continuing their education. Students who live in Belco’s seven-county service region and are not yet members may join the credit union and apply for a scholarship at the same time.

In 2000, Belco established the Elton “Miller” Peterman Scholarship Program in honor of one of its founding fathers, who passed away in September 2002. He and several other employees of the former Bell Telephone Company pooled their funds to establish Harrisburg Belco Federal Credit Union in 1939.

Scholarship applications are available at any branch, or online at www.belco.org/scholarship-program. Applicants must be a Belco member, a graduating high school senior or a college student, and must have a minimum 2.5 cumulative GPA. In addition to a completed application, other requirements include: a 300-word essay, and proof of college admittance/enrollment. Completed applications must be received no later than the close of business Friday, March 1, 2019.
