Betty L. Bukowski Financial Literacy Scholarship

Since 2007, People's Trust Foundation has given out scholarships to deserving high school seniors to help them attend college. In 2010, after the passing of Betty L. Bukowski, Chair of the People's Trust FCU Board of Directors, the Foundation renamed the scholarship in her memory. There will be four scholarships in the amount of $2,500 awarded.

Patricia Longoria Garcia Scholarship

The rising costs of a college education aren’t slowing down and unfortunately, this could impede a student from continuing their education. People’s Trust wants to help. In memory of our past Executive Vice President, Patricia Garcia, we are offering the Patricia Longoria Garcia Memorial Continuing Education Scholarship. If you are currently a college student with a minimum of 30 credit hours and you are a member of People’s Trust, you may be eligible for this $5,000 scholarship.
