Rick Davis Scholarship - Peach State Federal Credit

Peach State Federal Credit Union would like to honor Rick Davis by creating a scholarship in his name in appreciation for his years of service to their Board of Directors. Rick retired from the Gwinnett County Public School system after 30 years of service. Today Rick is a professional Santa Claus and enjoys bringing magic into the lives of children.

Eligibility Requirements:
In order to be eligible for the Rick Davis Scholarship, a student must:

  • Be accepted into Gwinnett Technical College;
  • Been enrolled in the Early Childhood and Education Program at Gwinnett Technical College; and
  • Prepare a 300-word essay expressing how the scholarship will benefit the applicant and his/her future educational plans and career goals.
  • Applicants with the greatest financial need will have greater consideration.

Applications cannot be processed unless all required documentation is attached to the application at time of submittal.

Scholarship funds are to be used for tuition, books, and program supplies used solely for the benefit of the individual receiving the scholarship. Before funds will be disbursed, the Foundation office must receive a note of thanks from the recipient to the donor(s).

The Gwinnett Tech Foundation committee will select and notify the scholarship recipients.

If the recipient fails to enroll, withdraws from college, or does not maintain eligibility requirements, the Gwinnett Tech Foundation will select another student if time permits; otherwise, funds will be held in the donor’s account to be carried over to the next semester.
