MUNICIPAL CREDIT UNION ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR 2018 SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM

 

NEW YORK CITY – Municipal Credit Union (MCU) is accepting applications for the 2018 Scholarship Program. This year, MCU will award $71,000 in scholarship grants to college-bound graduating high school seniors: nine memorial scholarships worth $5,000 each and 13 grants of $2,000 each.

“MCU is deeply committed to supporting the youth throughout the communities in which our members work and live," said MCU President/CEO Kam Wong. "Our scholarship program is one way we achieve this, by recognizing and rewarding young people for their outstanding academic performance and community service and helping them continue their educational pursuits. We hope our scholarships will enable these students to achieve their goals and succeed in their future endeavors.”

Eligibility for participation in the MCU Scholarship Program is open to MCU members, a child or a grandchild of a member in good standing. Selection is based on academic performance, extracurricular and community activities, references, and an essay expressing personal goals. Additionally, students applying for the scholarships who are also MCU members will also automatically be entered for a $500 statewide Public Relations and Marketing Council Scholarship.

Applications are available on MCU’s website, www.nymcu.org, and also at any MCU branch. The deadline for completed applications to be submitted is January 5, 2018. In addition to receiving the scholarships, all recipients will be recognized at a special awards reception in the spring of 2018.

“Our scholarship winners are exceptional young men and women who exemplify our credit union values through their drive, dedication to education, and commitment to community service,” said MCU President/CEO Kam Wong. “I am very proud that our scholarship program is able to support exceptional young people as they pursue the higher education that will help them to achieve goals and realize new dreams. We congratulate everyone who received an MCU scholarship or grant.”

The scholarships are part of MCU’s long-standing, larger corporate commitment to youth education and financial literacy. In addition to these scholarships, MCU also awards valedictorian/salutatorian recognition awards to graduating high school seniors.
