First Source Federal Credit Union is pleased to announce two great scholarship
opportunities for high school seniors and area educators.

For high school seniors the New York State Credit Union Association’s Statewide Scholarship Program is currently accepting applications. Any high school senior who is a member of a credit union is eligible to apply. In addition to the scholarships from the NYCUA, through the program First Source offers an additional scholarship worth $2,500. For full details and to apply go to

For area educators, First Source in conjunction with The Genesis Group is offering three $1,000 scholarships for teachers who provide programs on financial education. Programs such as personal finance or money management would qualify. For full details and to apply go to Under Programs, Celebration of Education, you can apply for the First Source Grant.

“First Source was originally founded as Utica Teachers Federal Credit Union and has always held education in high regard,” said Pamela Way, First Source Community Relations Supervisor. We are happy to not only participate in both of these programs but be able to offer additional scholarships as well. And generally, it’s the students who get the funding so we love that we can give back to the teachers too.”
