The New York Credit Union Association’s Statewide Scholarship Program will provide $21,500 in financial assistance to 30 college-bound high school students. The students represent 18 New York credit unions and 10 chapters from throughout New York.
Nearly 1,500 students from more than 75 credit unions applied for the scholarships, which ranged from $500-$1,250.
The program was open to New York credit union members who are high school seniors planning to enroll in a two- or four-year college. Award recipients were selected based on academic performance, honors and awards, extracurricular activities, community activities, leadership roles and an essay.

In addition to the scholarships awarded through the Association’s statewide program, New York credit unions awarded more than $2.7 million in total scholarships to college-bound members last year.
