SACRAMENTO, CA (June 27, 2017) — Golden 1 Credit Union today announced it has awarded 43 California students more than $400,500 in scholarships as part of its ongoing effort to invest in the state’s future leaders. The recipients hail from across the state of California and range in education level from incoming college freshmen to seniors.

“We are thrilled to offer Golden 1 Credit Union scholarships to California students who excel in the classroom and have exemplified a commitment to community involvement,” said Erica Taylor, Vice President of Communications and Community Relations for Golden 1 Credit Union. “This program is one of many Golden 1 initiatives that demonstrate our commitment to giving back to our members by helping them to achieve their educational and career goals.”

The Golden 1 Credit Union scholarship program provides credit union members and their dependents financial assistance, valued at up to $20,000 per student, for full-time students who plan to attend accredited, nonprofit two-year community colleges or four-year colleges and universities in California.
