Essay title: If you were to develop a financial education program, what topics would you consider most relevant to students? How would you market it (what format), and how would you measure your success in reaching your generation?
Essays are evaluated by persons not affiliated with Topside FCU. This group does not see the application and is only provided the essay to determine the winners of the scholarship. The deadline to be considered for the 2021 Topside FCU scholarships is March 15, 2021. The scholarship funds will be sent to the college, university, or trade school in the name of the student and must be used within one year.
