As in previous years the Polish & Slavic Federal Credit Union is offering scholarship programs to its young and ambitious members for their college education.
Polish & Slavic Federal Credit Union once again is participating in the New York Credit Union Association’s scholarship program, which offers college-bound high school seniors the opportunity to compete for statewide college scholarships. Scholarships will be awarded up to $2,500 and may be used at a two- or four-year accredited educational institution.
There is no fee for submitting an application, but applicants must be:
- Member of Polish & Slavic Federal Credit Union;
- College-bound high school seniors at the time of application; and
- Attending either a two- or four-year accredited educational institution for the first time in the fall of 2022.
Students can take advantage of this opportunity by following these simple steps:
- Fill out and save on your device the scholarship application form, download it here;
- Obtain the verification code by calling our Member Services Center at 1.855.773.2848 or visiting the PSFCU (without this code you cannot submit your application).
- Submit the application with supporting documents (a high school transcript documenting your GPA for grades 9-11, ACT/PSAT/SAT transcript and required essay) through the NYCUA website (please see link below) by uploading separate files either in the pdf or MS Word format. Your parent or guardian must sign the Certification and Release Authorization on the last page of the application form.
