TDECU Scholarship Program

Rewarding our hard-working student members

Thank you for your interest in the TDECU Scholarship Program!

Each year TDECU awards scholarships to the most promising students in all TDECU markets that have chosen to continue down the path of higher education.

The scholarship program was first created by the credit union’s Board of Directors 18 years ago to help our members secure a brighter future.

This scholarship program is designed to help deserving TDECU Members graduating from high school and entering college for the first time pay for the cost of attending a college, university, or trade school.

The scholarship awards are based on need, academic performance and leadership skills. The $1500 scholarships awarded are paid in two increments:

  • $750 initial payment for Fall Semester
  • $750 for the Spring Semester (upon receipt of required documentation)

Scholarship applications for 2019 will be available in December 2019.
