Comments Off on Alliance Credit Union Continues Their Support of CFCC Students with Scholarship

Wilmington, NC – Alliance Credit Union continues its support of Cape Fear Community College students by funding a $1,000 scholarship for the 2012 academic year.

The Alliance Credit Union Business Program Scholarship was designed to support second-year business students at CFCC with a GPA of 3.0 or higher.  “We feel honored to help students who are working so diligently toward achieving their educational goals,” said Rachel Lee Robinson, Alliance Credit Union Business Relations Manager.

The scholarship will be awarded later this summer to a CFCC student who is enrolled for the Fall 2012 semester.  The winner will be selected by the Cape Fear Community College Financial Aid Office.  In order to be considered, students must submit an essay describing their goals within the field, how the scholarship will benefit them, and their recent community service.  The recipient must be a resident of New Hanover, Pender, or Brunswick County.  Interested students may apply at

Alliance Credit Union also supports The Carousel Center for Abused Children, Cell Phones for Soldiers, Hands on Wilmington, and other charitable groups.  “We strive to make a meaningful impact in the community around us,” said Robinson. “Alliance Credit Union is here because the community supports us.  We embrace the opportunity to give back.”

Alliance Credit Union is a member-owned, financial cooperative serving more than 40,000 members in six counties—Santa Clara, San Mateo and Alameda counties in California, and New Hanover, Pender and Brunswick counties in North Carolina.

The Cape Fear Community College Foundation exists solely to support the students, instructors, programs and mission of the College. The Foundation secures and manages gifts and grants, including cash contributions, deferred gifts, securities, donated services, and equipment and supplies for educational purposes.  For more information about CFCC, The CFCC Foundation or scholarship opportunities, please contact the Cape Fear Community College Foundation at 910.362.7207 or visit
