These leading scholars will also compete for additional scholarships offered by the New York Credit Union Association (NYCUA).
About our Scholarship program:
Each year the New York Credit Union Association (NYCUA) offers several scholarships. The winners are chosen from the applications sent in from credit unions across New York State based on academic performance, extracurricular and community activities, references and personal goals.
In addition, Nassau Financial offers four $2,000.00 scholarships ($500 x 4 years) to the top four students representing Nassau Financial. These students are chosen for us by NYCUA on the same basis as their awards. Winners are required to accept their scholarship check in person, at a scholarship reception held at Nassau Financial in June.
Nassau Financial members who are high school seniors, college-bound for the first time may apply for all of these scholarship by filling out just one application. These students will compete with other students across New York State for the NYCUA awards, as well as for one of the four Nassau Financial scholarships offered to our members in good standing.*
