CEDAR POINT SCHOLARSHIP OPPORTUNITIES
Each year Cedar Point Federal Credit Union teams up with Cedar Point Financial Services to offer scholarships to high school seniors who are looking to further their education. In addition, we work closely with BECA (St. Mary's County scholarship clearinghouse) to promote the use of the St. Mary's County Common Scholarship Application. This application allows students to choose from 40+ different local organizations awarding up to 120 individual scholarships, and apply with just one application. We also work with Calvert LSA (Calvert county scholarship clearing house) to promote the use of the Calvert County Common Scholarship Application. This application allows students to choose from 45+ different local organizations.
