At HUECU, we’re committed to helping students reach their financial and academic goals. That’s why we award ten $1,000 scholarships to students starting their first year of college.
In the program’s fifth year, the all-volunteer Scholarship Review Committee reviewed a number of applications from students across the country. Like our applicants, the committee volunteers represent a diverse group of individuals from our own HUECU community. We would like to thank all of our Scholarship Review Committee members for their time and advocacy on the behalf of these talented students.
