SAFE scholarships are awarded annually to students who live or attend school in Sacramento, Placer, Yolo, Yuba, Sutter, Amador, Butte, Contra Costa, Nevada, San Joaquin, Solano or El Dorado counties. SAFE membership is not required to apply.
The application package for 2014 is available online at safecu.org and at SAFE branches. Interested students can also call 916-979-7233 or 800-SEE-SAFE.
