We're proud to support the academic goals of our young members and family members of our Sharonview team. Each year, we honor deserving students with scholarship money to help with the costs of their undergraduate degree by awarding these scholarships.
Sharonview is partnering with the Carolinas Credit Union Foundation to offer a smooth and easy-to-manage application process for our members. There's a simple sign-up process which allows you to manage your scholarship application through their portal.
In addition to the scholarships Sharonview offers, the Carolinas Credit Union Foundation is offering additional scholarship awards. Any applicant that does not receive a scholarship award from Sharonview is automatically entered in the Carolinas Credit Union Foundation's scholarship pool.
Applicants will use the Scholarship Application Portal at the Carolinas Credit Union Foundation. The process is as follows:
- Create a login for the portal.
- Start a new scholarship application.
- Save your progress and return later if needed.
- Once submitted, you will not be able to make further changes to your application.
- Notifications and updates will be received through the portal.
Before starting the application, make sure you have the following documents to attach to the scholarship application.
- Obtain full transcript from an accredited educational institution. Partial transcripts and/or transcripts with a weighted GPA will not be considered for application.
- Secure documentation from school officials, volunteer organizations or employers for honors, awards and service hours.
- High School Seniors must submit a copy of their college acceptance letter with their application.
