Student College Scholarships Offered By MCU

Municipal Credit Union is offering local high school students entering college a chance to win a scholarship to help finance their education.

MCU’s scholarship program consists of a total of thirty-five grants: thirty-three $1,000 grants and two $5,000 Memorial grants honoring Charles Faulding and Julian I. Garfield, former MCU board members.

To be eligible, students must be high school seniors attending college for the first time, be a member themselves, or a child or grandchild of an MCU member in good standing.

Applicants will be judged based on their academic performance, extracurricular and community activities, an essay question and a teacher’s reference. Applications must be returned to MCU no later than Monday, February 3, 2003.

If the student applying is a member of MCU themselves they will also automatically be entered into separate statewide and local NYS Credit Union League Public Relations & Marketing Council scholarship competitions.

Applications are available at all MCU branches, on-line at www.nymcu.org, or by calling 212-693-4900, weekdays 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturdays 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
