Congratulations 2024 scholarship recipients!

The Centra Foundation and Centra Credit Union invest in our Members’ future through the Loretta M. Burd Scholarship Program. Each year, the Centra Foundation awards one scholarship per Centra location to graduating high school seniors and a number of adult scholarships. The adult scholarship is awarded to adults over the age of 22 who’ve made the decision to further their education.

This year, we were able to add two additional adult scholarships thanks to a special donor, for a total of 36 scholarships awarded to those looking to further their education. We’re excited to announce this year’s scholarship recipients and hope you’ll join us in congratulating them!
