Niagara Regional Federal Credit Union is offering college-bound high school seniors the opportunity to compete for statewide college scholarships. Scholarships will be awarded ranging from $250 to $1,500 and may be used at a two- or four-year accredited educational institution. In addition, NRFCU will be offering another $1,000 scholarship to one of our eligible student members.

Students can take advantage of this opportunity by completing three simple steps:

1. Stop in at any NRFCU branch to request a scholarship application form, or CLICK HERE to download an electronic application. If the student is not a member of NiagaraRegional FCU, he/she can request a membership packet as well. (All scholarship applicants are required to be members of a participating New York credit union.)

2. Complete the application form and required essay and obtain the required transcripts, along with the signature of a parent or guardian.

3. Return the completed application and supportive materials to Niagara Regional FCU no later than January 5, 2018. There is no fee for submitting an application, but applicants MUST be:

• members of Niagara Regional FCU;

• college-bound high school seniors at the time of application; and

• attending either a two- or four-year accredited educational institution for the first time in the fall of 2018.

In early spring, applications will be judged against other submissions statewide. Winners will be announced in MayFor more information about this scholarship program, contact Tony Berrafato by calling 694-7344 or emailing tberrafato@nrfcu.com.
