NJCUL Provides ADA Compliant Student Application and Social Media Materials for YIB Scholarship Participants

HIGHTSTOWN, N.J. – The New Jersey Credit Union League has made it easier for New Jersey credit unions to promote their participation in the Youth Involvement Board (YIB) Scholarship program. The League’s Business Partner, Your Marketing Company, assisted by making the YIB Scholarship student application compliant with Americans with Disability Act (ADA) Web site guidelines for credit unions to post online. The League also provided participating credit unions with social media graphics and messages to promote to members on digital platforms. 

Graphic 6Credit unions can use these tools as well as a lobby poster, newsletter article, and letter to schools provided by the League to promote the opportunity to young members and potential members through the application deadline date of March 29, 2019.

NJCUL-member credit unions have until Friday, February 1st to sign-up for the Youth Involvement Board (YIB) Scholarship program. To sign-up, credit unions must fill out and submit a completed Participation Agreement as well as payment.

The annual program awards 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 four-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. Winners are announced at the end of May.

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