GPO Federal Credit Union has awarded scholarships to three local high school seniors to help finance their college education. The New York Credit Union Association independently judged the applications that were submitted from credit unions all over New York State. The three scholarship winners, all GPO Federal Credit Union members, competed against nearly 875 credit union members from 66 credit unions across the state.  These students were chosen based on their outstanding academic and extracurricular achievements.  Congratulations to Anna Rossi, Audrey Williams and Andrew Soron!


GPO members who are graduating high school seniors have two scholarship opportunities: the GPO Federal Credit Union scholarship and the New York Credit Union Association scholarship program. The New York Credit Union Association’s awards range from $250 to $1,500 to be paid jointly to the student and educational institution. In addition, members will be eligible to win either a $1,500, $1,000 or $500 scholarship awarded through GPO.
