$4,000 in Annual Education Scholarships Awarded by Belvoir Federal

WOODBRIDGE, VA (June 5, 2013) Belvoir Federal Credit Union and GEICO partnered together again in 2013 to award $4,000 in scholarships to one graduating high school senior and one student continuing their education.

Applicants were asked to answer three questions related to mobile banking and remote deposit capture (Deposit Everywhere Mobile), how Belvoir Federal was helping members understand the importance of financial literacy and what could be done better, and the difference between any credit union and bank in relation to products and personal experience. The answers received from pursuing candidates gave a better understanding into the way Gen-X and Gen-Y perceive Belvoir Federal and the latest technological advances in the financial industry.

The recipients of the 2013 Belvoir Federal/GEICO Scholarships were Taylor McManus and Jefferson Thompson. The graduating high school senior, Taylor, plans on attending Maryland Institute College of Art to pursue a degree in Illustration. The continuing education student, Jefferson, is attending Hampden-Sydney College to advance his career in Medicine and Cardiology through his degree in Biology and Chemistry.
