2021 College Scholarship Programs
Our two distinct college scholarship programs recognize and reward exceptional students who demonstrate traits of leadership, a commitment to public service and a desire to make a positive impact on their communities.
Badge of Honor College Scholarship
This scholarship program was born out of a desire to support students of first-responders during the COVID-19 pandemic. This year, we continue to offer this scholarship opportunity as many first-responder families are still feeling the heavy affects of the pandemic.
To be eligible for both the Badge of Honor Scholarship and/or the Sustainability Scholarship, applicants must meet all of the following criteria:
- Be a graduating senior from a high school in San Diego County.
- Have a cumulative high school GPA of 3.0 or better, based upon a 4.0 scale.
- Acceptance by, or plans to attend, an accredited college or university on a full-time basis beginning fall 2021.
- Submit a completed and signed application, either online, in-branch or by mail, to Wheelhouse Credit Union.
In addition to the above requirements, applicants for the Badge of Honor Scholarship must have a parent, grandparent or legal guardian who is an active member of law enforcement, fire protection service, healthcare or EMT in San Diego County.
Wheelhouse Credit Union membership is not required to apply for either scholarship.
