Three scholarships from New England Federal Credit Union’s annual Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) Scholarship Program have been given to high school students in Vermont.
NEFCU, which took its lead from the National Science Foundation, gives out three $3,000 scholarships annually to anyone wishing to pursue careers in the hard sciences.
Abigail Raleigh of St. Albans, who will graduate from Missisquoi Valley Union High School in June, was one of the scholarship beneficiaries this year. All of the recipients were graduating seniors from high schools in Vermont.
She plans to attend the University of New England in the fall.
“It’s inspiring to read through the applications and learn about each person’s goals and aspirations,” said David Bird, VP of brand engagement & partnerships at NEFCU. “NEFCU is proud to support these three students as they start college and begin their career journeys in science, technology, engineering or mathematics.”
