TrailNorth Federal Credit Union is offering local high school seniors a chance to win scholarships for college. TrailNorth Federal Credit Union is participating in the New York Credit Union Association’s statewide credit union scholarship program, which provides credit union members with scholarships. In 2017, scholarships awarded ranged from $500 to $1,500.
To be eligible, students must be high school seniors attending two- or four-year accredited educational institutions for the first time in the fall of 2018. They must also be members of TrailNorth Federal Credit Union or another participating New York credit union.Students/applicants will be competing against other credit union members from across the state. Applicants will be judged based upon academic achievements, extracurricular and community activities and the quality of written essays. Last year, the New York Credit Union Association awarded $29,500 in scholarships through the program. In addition, TrailNorth Federal Credit Union awarded $1,500 to three local students.
“We are very pleased to award these scholarships to our hard-working young members,” said Shawn Hayes. “It proves that the ‘people helping people’ philosophy of the credit union movement is alive and well here in our area.”
