Jax Federal Credit Union awards scholarship to FAMU biomedical engineering student

Jax Federal Credit Union recently presented Ryan Wallace with a $1,000 scholarship. Wallace, a 2017 graduate of Jean Ribault Senior High School, is a rising freshman at Florida A&M University who plans to study biomedical engineering.

The credit union received more than 30 applications for this year’s scholarship contest. Applicants had to submit an entry form, essay questions and transcripts. Wallace was chosen for his participation in financial education programs, athletic leadership skills and his understanding of how investing in his education will benefit his future.

“Every year, we are impressed by the quality of applications for this scholarship,” said Gerri Sexsion, president and CEO of Jax Federal Credit Union. “We are proud to have Ryan as a member, and commend his dedication to the study of biomedical engineering. It is an honor to contribute to his education through this award.”

Since 2004, Jax Federal Credit Union has awarded more than $13,000 in scholarships to its members. All members who are in good standing and enrolled in a degree program at an accredited technical program, college or university are eligible to apply for the credit union’s annual scholarship contest.

Applications for the 2018 scholarship contest will open in May 2018.

Jax Federal Credit Union was founded in 1935. Today, the Jacksonville-based credit union serves more than 30,000 members in Duval, Clay, Nassau, Baker and St. Johns Counties.
