Centra Credit Union members eligible for foundation scholarship


COLUMBUS, IND. — Centra Foundation is now accepting applications  for the 2022 Loretta M. Burd Scholarship Program. The program will award 27 total $2,500  scholarships to graduating high school seniors and adult students this year. Each Centra  branch will award one $2,500 scholarship to a high school senior in the local community.  The remaining scholarships will be awarded to adult or non-traditional students who have  decided to return to school. The Loretta M. Burd Adult Scholarship may be used to pursue  an undergraduate degree, graduate degree or certification from an accredited college,  university or technical/trade school. 

Named in honor of Loretta M. Burd, who retired from Centra Credit Union after 47 years of  service, the Loretta M. Burd Scholarship Program is designed to invest in Members’ futures.  The program specifically helps local students who plan to attend a two- or four-year college,  university or technical/trade school. 

To qualify for a scholarship, the applicant or the applicant’s parent or legal guardian must be  a Member of Centra Credit Union with an account in good standing.

All applications will be reviewed on academic achievements, school and community involvement, work history and a short essay about  financial literacy. The scholarship places value on well-rounded students who display a  strong work ethic and involvement in their local community. Scholarship recipients will be  announced in April 2022.
