MCU has awarded $65,000 in scholarships to college-bound graduating high school seniors: five memorial scholarship grants of $5,000 each and 20 grants of $2,000 each. The scholarships were presented to the recipients by MCU President/CEO Kam Wong at a special presentation reception at MCU’s headquarters here.


Eligibility for the MCU scholarships was open to an MCU member, a child or a grandchild of a member in good standing.  Selection was based on academic performance, extracurricular and community activities, letters of recommendation, and an essay expressing personal goals. The scholarships are part of MCU’s long-standing, larger corporate commitment to youth education and financial literacy across New York City.
