Ascend Federal Credit Union is once again helping 10 of its members continue their education with $1,000 scholarships.
Over the past decade, Ascend has awarded a total of $100,000 to 100 credit union members to help them attend an accredited college, university, technical, or trade school.
Local winners of the 2012 Ascend Federal Credit Union Scholarship were Abigail Marbibi, Shelbyville Central High School; and Amber Wiser, Shelbyville Central High School.
Details for Ascend's 2013 scholarship will be posted at ascendfcu.org in December. Ascend employees, officials and any of their family members are excluded from eligibility. Scholarship winners may reapply for the next academic year.
Ascend Federal Credit Union has a financial center on 1900 N. Main St. in Shelbyville. Federally insured by the NCUA, membership is limited.
