2024 Scholarship Program

The 2024 Scholarship Application is now live!

Fund Your College Dreams: Now Accepting Scholarship Applications

Western New York Federal Credit Union is proud to announce a scholarship opportunity for college-bound students! In partnership with New York Credit Union Association (NYCUA), we are opening applications for high school seniors attending two- or four-year accredited educational institutions as well as vocational or trade schools in 2024. The program is designed to provide funds that would be used toward tuition, room and board, books, and school supplies.

Just last year, NYCUA awarded $26,250 in college scholarships, ranging from $500 to $1,500 to 45 students. At WNYFCU we believe in the boundless potential of our young scholars. This scholarship is more than financial support; it’s a belief in their dreams and an investment in our community’s future. We encourage all eligible students to apply and wish them success in their academic pursuits.

Who Is Eligible?

To qualify for this scholarship, applicants must be:

  • Members of WNYFCU.
  • College-bound high school seniors at the time of application.
  • Planning to attend a two- or four-year accredited educational institution, vocational, or trade school for the first time in the fall of 2024.
