As a credit union, we are devoted to our communities’ financial wellness. One way we encourage and support you is through education. That’s why we’re proud to offer the Mary Keith Duff Memorial Scholarship program. This year, our annual scholarship program will award $2,000 each to 20 deserving Travis members who are high school seniors bound for college.
The MKD Scholarship
The Mary Keith Duff Memorial Scholarship was created in 2004 to honor the late Mary Keith Duff, a credit union volunteer known for her hard work, judgment, and dedication. Mary was the first woman to serve on the Travis Credit Union Board of Directors. She’s remembered for her wonderful spirit and unwavering responsibility to give her very best to the members she represented. It’s this spirit of responsibility, altruism, and hard work that our judges search for when selecting scholarship recipients.
How to apply for the scholarship
Travis members who are high school seniors may either download and complete an application, or apply online at www.traviscu.org/scholarship.* Requirements also include a GPA of 3.0 or higher, membership with TCU, and a letter of reference from a teacher verifying an applicant’s scholastic honors, awards, and qualities such as leadership and community involvement.
Students may drop off hard copies of their applications at any TCU branch or mail them to:
Travis Credit Union
P.O. Box 2069
Vacaville, CA 95696
The deadline is March 2, 2020, and completed applications must be received at the credit union by close of business.
Winners will be chosen by the Scholarship Committee, and scholarships will be awarded by June 11, 2020. The MKD Scholarship is yet another way Travis Credit Union lifts our communities through financial wellness.
*Applications and transcripts will not be returned and will become the property of Travis Credit Union. TCU senior officers, employees, volunteers, and their families are not eligible. Winners will be chosen by the Scholarship Committee. Illegible entries may be disqualified. Winners will be notified by mail or phone, and agree to have their names and photos published in TCU promotional materials. Scholarships will be awarded by June 2020. After confirmation of acceptance and registration at a 2-year community college or a 4-year college or university with 12 or more credits or units, the award will be deposited onto a TCU Access Card and presented or mailed to each recipient.
