Granite State Credit Union Supports Candia Dollars for Scholars

Granite State Credit Union has donated $250 to Candia Dollars for Scholars® in support of a scholarship benefiting local students.

"We are so grateful for this gift, which will help Candia students pursue their career goals by defraying some of their education costs," said Candia Dollars for Scholars® Coordinator Colleen Bolton, shown in photo above with  Granite State Credit Union branch manager Scott McVicar.

Candia Dollars for Scholars manages several scholarships supported by local businesses and community organizations as well as individuals. Through Dollars for Scholars, high school seniors and current college students can use a single application to apply for scholarships in support of their studies at two- and four-year colleges, universities, community colleges and vocational schools.

"Granite State Credit Union is an important part of this community, and we're pleased to be able to help a local student achieve his or her career goals," said Candia branch manager McVicar. "We also encourage other Candia businesses to join us in supporting Candia's young people, as they work to become our next generation of business leaders, doctors, lawyers, engineers, marketers, and teachers."

Bolton explained that Candia businesses, organizations and residents can provide as little as $500 to $1,000 to establish a named scholarship. Some residents can honor the memory of a loved one with a named scholarship, while businesses can target students with specific areas of study.

"There is no need to provide thousands of dollars," says Bolton. "We welcome support at any level." For more information on creating a scholarship, visit www.candia.dollarsforscholars.org 

Scholarship applications for Candia residents currently attending or planning to attend a post-secondary school are now being accepted. Students can apply online at candia.dollarsforscholars.org. The deadline to apply is May 1 for awards distributed for the 2018-19 academic year.
