College Scholarship

Ben Watson College Scholarship

Inspire Federal Credit Union will award the $1,500 Ben Watson Scholarship to one high school senior in Bucks County who will attend a full time course of study at an accredited two or four year college, university, trade, technical or business school. 


Inspire was proud to announce the winner of the 2017 Ben Watson Scholarship at their 81st annual meeting. The process, which begins in early January, starts with students submitting an application form, a copy of their high school transcript, a letter of recommendation and an essay. This year, the essay was titled "My Educational and Financial Goals for College and Beyond and the Role Inspire Federal Credit Union Can Play". After all the application material is received, a committee of judges at the Credit Union reviews and scores against a measure of standards applicable to all students.
