Credit Union Scholarships
Each year, NNMECU offers scholarships to three (3) deserving students entering their Freshman – Senior year of college.
The Charles L. Jones Memorial Scholarship is in the amount of $750 and the two remaining scholarships, the William “Bill” Cutts and J. Emmett Gwaltney Scholarships, are in the amount of $500 each. The money will be paid to the college of the winner’s choice when he/she is ready to register.

All applications require an essay on a pre-determined topic. Essays should be 500 words in length and should be submitted in a 12-point font, double spaced. Essay judging will be based on originality, meaningfulness/impact on the applicant’s life, clarity of expression, composition, spelling and grammar.
