(CARSON CITY, Nevada) July 18, 2012 — Fifteen students received $1,000 scholarships from Greater Nevada Credit Union for the upcoming school year. More than 64 students applied for the program, which the Credit Union has offered to local students for the past 13 years.

“It’s our pleasure to provide financial support to some of the region’s best students so they can continue their education,” said President/CEO for Greater Nevada Credit Union, Wally Murray.

The scholarships were awarded on a competitive basis and winners were selected based on their academic performance, school and community involvement, recommendations from school and community leaders, and financial need. The $1,000 scholarships can be used for tuition, course registration, special class or laboratory fees, room and board, textbooks and class materials.

In addition to the 15 recipients, three alternates were named in the event that one or more of the winners is unable to enroll and attend school on a full-time basis during the 2012-2013 school year.
