For college-bound high school seniors, getting ready to fill out federal financial aid applications or nervously expecting an acceptance letter may occupy some of their time at this time of year.
But by taking a few hours to fill out a scholarship application, it also could mean money in otherwise empty pockets, thanks to Travis Credit Union.
Based in Vacaville, the nonprofit financial institution announced earlier this year that it will award 20 scholarships, of $1,500 each, to those who qualify.
Each applicant must have a minimum GPA of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale, be bound for a two– or four–year college or university, and be a member of Travis Credit Union.
