The New Jersey Credit Union Foundation Scholarship

The New Jersey Credit Union Foundation offers credit unions throughout the state an opportunity to participate in a statewide scholarship program for high school seniors.  The Foundation awards eight scholarships to credit union members seeking post-secondary education in the amount of $1,000 each. Four scholarships are awarded to students attending a four-year college/university and four scholarships are awarded to students attending technical/vocational 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 four-year college or university and the top scoring student attending a technical/vocational school or community college.

Scholarship applicants are competing against all other applicants in their chapter. The applicants will be judged based on academic performance, community involvement, honors, leadership roles, and other criteria.

If you would like to take advantage of this great opportunity to help your young members, please contact Kathleen.fey@pcua.org for a Participation Agreement.  Agreements must be submitted no later than January 31, 2020 with the Scholarship Program Participation Fee of $175.
