CUs can now register as 2021 College Scholarship Program participants


Credit unions and chapters can once again offer college scholarships to deserving young members with the New York Credit Union Association’s annual, statewide College Scholarship Program.

With just one application, college-bound members are able to easily apply for up to three scholarships:

  • the Association’s Statewide College Scholarship Program;
  • the participating credit union’s scholarship (if one is offered); and
  • the participating Chapter scholarship (if one is offered).

The deadline for credit unions to register for the program is Oct. 30. All completed scholarship applications must be submitted to the Association by Jan. 8, 2021. Scholarship recipients will be announced in late April or early May.

In 2020, participating credit unions awarded $30,000 in scholarships to 49 students through the program.

The Association’s Scholarship Program is an easy and cost-effective way to offer members the chance to receive a scholarship from the Association, your credit union (if you offer one) and your Chapter (based on chapter participation) simultaneously.

The entire College Scholarship Program registration process for credit unions is accessible online. Credit unions interested in participating in the 2021 program should visit the Association’s website for details and registration instructions.
