AmeriCU Credit Union is proud to connect ten deserving high school seniors or continuing college students with a $1,000 scholarship toward their education. The credit union’s scholarship program invests in the future of our communities and provides valuable assistance to students pursuing their educational dreams.

The scholarship program is open to all members of AmeriCU Credit Union who will attend an accredited college, university, or other institution of higher learning on a full-time basis during the next academic year. Scholarship recipients are chosen by a committee and award winners are honored at the credit union’s annual meeting in March.

“We encourage students from the entire region, spanning the twenty-four counties served by AmeriCU in New York to participate in the program. All completed applications will be reviewed providing an equal opportunity for members to receive awards,” says Joseph Turczyn, Board Member and Chairman of the AmeriCU Scholarship Committee.

AmeriCU members are also eligible to apply for the New York Credit Union Association’s (NYCUA) Scholarship Program. The NYCUA partners with credit unions to offer their graduating seniors attending college for the first time in the Fall of 2024. The program is designed to provide funds that would be used toward tuition, room and board, books, and school supplies.

Applications are available at all financial centers or through the credit union’s website. Completed applications must be received by January 5, 2024 to be eligible. Individuals interested in becoming an AmeriCU Member can connect by visiting the credit union online or at the nearest financial center.
