Scholarship

It’s college scholarship season once again!

The New Jersey Credit Union League's Youth Involvement Board will award eight (8) scholarships to credit union members seeking post-secondary education in the amount of $1,000 each. Four scholarships will be awarded to students attending 4-year colleges or universities and four scholarships will be awarded to students attending technical schools or community colleges.

Credit unions are categorized by chapter: Northern, North-Central, Southern, and South-Central. Two winners are chosen in each chapter: the top scoring student attending a 4-year college or university and the top scoring student attending a technical/vocational school or community college. This will give more opportunity to all the credit unions in each chapter to produce a scholarship winner. The goal of the scholarship program is to be able to aid as many students as possible.

If you would like to take advantage of this great opportunity to help your young members, fill out the Participation Agreement and return it with a check for the appropriate amount to NJCUL by February 2, 2018. Please use the fee chart to determine your credit union's investment.

Please provide students with the 2017-2018 Scholarship Application. Students need to fill out the application and return to it the sponsoring credit union by March 30, 2018. The credit union will then sign the application and return it to NJCUL.

If you have any questions regarding the program, please contact Natalie Spangenberg at nspangenberg@njcul.org or 800-792-8861 ext. 110.

Board

The New Jersey Credit union League’s Youth Involvement Board (YIB) is made of credit union professionals as well as League staff members dedicated to reaching young credit union members. 

Currently, the Board organizes an annual scholarship program open to all NJCUL-member credit unions to offer their young members. The Board would also like to branch out into other areas of helping the state’s youth. 

Members of the Board are also welcome to participate in the National Youth Involvement Board (NYIB), a national network of credit union professionals that share ideas and best practices when it comes to marketing to and attracting young members as well as providing financial literacy.

If you’re interested in joining the board, please send an email to Marissa Anema at manema@njcul.org.
