SAFE Credit Union is encouraging teens to apply for $1,000 scholarships.
The credit union, with 21 branches in the greater Sacramento area, will award the scholarships to 10 college-bound high school seniors.
Winners are chosen based on grade-point averages, financial need, community involvement and a personal statement.
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.
The application package is available at safecu.org or SAFE branches.
Application packages must be postmarked no later than Monday.
