For the second year in a row, St. Louis Community Credit Union announced the establishment of the Janice Mosby Scholarship fund through the St. Louis Community CU Foundation. The Foundation will award $2,500 scholarships to three eligible adult students in spring 2012.
To be considered for this scholarship opportunity, applicants must be first-time or re-entry students ages 23 or older with aspirations to attend college full or part-time and are trying to move forward with their lives. Proof of enrollment is required. Applicants must be seeking an undergraduate degree and enrolled or planning to enroll at an accredited school (two or four-year university or technical school) in the Greater St. Louis Metropolitan area.
Recognizing the important role education plays in the creation of fiscally responsible citizens, the St. Louis Community CU Foundation created the scholarship fund in 2011 to honor the legacy of the late Janice Mosby. Mosby was a teacher and principal in the St. Louis Public Schools for more than 30 years. With a kind heart and gentle spirit, she dedicated her life to helping students in the community develop to their fullest potential. Mosby served on the St. Louis Community Credit Union’s Board of Directors for 40 years and as a Board member of the Credit Union’s Foundation.
The deadline for all applications is Friday, March 9. Click here for additional eligibility information and to access the application.
