DiSylvester Memorial Scholarship

TruWest® Credit Union is pleased to support our Arizona and Texas members by offering the DiSylvester Memorial Scholarship program! This program was created in honor of our late President and CEO Peter DiSylvester who was dedicated to increasing the financial awareness and overall education of our members.

Because there is a lack of scholarship opportunities available for upperclassmen, we created this scholarship for students entering their junior year of college in Arizona and Texas to help pay for their final years as an undergraduate.

Three $2,500 two-year scholarships will be awarded each year, and applicants must meet the following requirements to be considered:

  • Must be a TruWest Credit Union member in good standing
  • Must be a full-time sophomore who will attain junior-level status in the following semester
  • Must attend an Arizona- or Texas-based university
  • Must be in a degree program
  • Cumulative 3.0 GPA on a 4.0 scale
  • Must be pursuing first undergraduate degree
  • No criminal record
  • Must be a U.S. citizen

Interested students must fill out the scholarship application online and attach an essay (see form for details) and transcript before submitting the application.
