At the conclusion of its 2023 Mitchell-Beall-Rosen Memorial Scholarship Contest, NASA Federal Credit Union awarded scholarships—ranging from $1,000 to the top prize of $10 ,000—to seven high school seniors. The annual program rewards the writing talents of young Credit Union members who are working toward four-year or two-year undergraduate degrees or vocational studies. Students submit 1,000-word essays that focus on their educational goals and financial literacy as it applies to the cost of a college education and their plans for paying it.

“I am always impressed by the accomplishments of our scholarship winners, and these seven young members are no exception,” said Dr. Alotta Taylor , Chairperson of NASA Federal’s Scholarship Committee. “Our future is in good hands with them, and NASA Federal Credit Union is proud to contribute to their success through the Mitchell-Beall-Rosen Memorial Scholarship.”

Among the recipients included an Eastern Shore of Virginia student, Alexandrea Bell of Chincoteague, VA. Bell plans on studying health and exercise science at Roanoke College.

About the NASA Federal Credit Union Scholarship Program

The Scholarship Program was established in 1983 in memory of Wilfred Mitchell and then renamed in 1991 to also honor Donald Beall . Both men are former NASA Federal Credit Union officials who were strong advocates of the education of our youth. In 2010, the name of the scholarship program was again changed, to the Mitchell-Beall-Rosen Memorial Scholarship Program, in honor of Eugene D. Rosen , who was instrumental in launching the program and served as its chairman for 27 years. Mitchell , Beall, and Rosen are fondly remembered for their commitment to the Credit Union movement and especially for their efforts to help young people succeed.
