2022 Statewide College Scholarship Program
UTELFCU Now Accepting College Scholarship Applications
Utica District Telephone Employees Federal Credit Union is offering college-bound high school seniors the opportunity to compete for statewide college scholarships through the New York Credit Union Association’s College Scholarship Program. Scholarships may be used at a two- or four-year accredited educational institution. In 2021, the New York Credit Union Association awarded $30,750 in college scholarships, ranging from $500 to $1,500, to 41 students.
Students can take advantage of this opportunity by completing these steps:
- Click Here to download an application. The student will need to contact the credit union directly to obtain a credit union verification code to verify eligibility. If the student is not a member of UTELFCU, he/she can request a membership packet as well. (All scholarship applicants are required to be members of a participating New York credit union.)
- Complete the application form and required essay and obtain the required transcripts, along with the signature of a parent or guardian.
- Upload and submit the completed application and supportive materials online no later than Friday, January 7, 2022.
There is no fee for submitting an application, but applicants MUST be:
- members of UTELFCU;
- 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 2022.
In early spring, applications will be judged against other submissions statewide. Winners will be announced in May.
