YONKERS, N.Y. – Municipal Credit Union is accepting applications for the 2015 Scholarship Program. MCU will award $66,000 in scholarship grants to college-bound high school seniors. The company will offer eight memorial scholarships worth $5,000 each and 13 grants worth $2,000 each.
Eligibility in the MCU Scholarship Program is open to all MCU members and the children or grandchildren of a member in good standing. Selection is based on academic performance, extracurricular and community activities, references, and an essay expressing personal goals. Students applying for the scholarships who are also MCU members will be entered for a $500 statewide Public Relations and Marketing Council Scholarship.
“MCU is deeply committed to supporting the youth throughout the communities our members work and live,” said Kam Wong, MCU president and chief executive officer. “Our Scholarship Program is one way we achieve this by recognizing and rewarding young people for their outstanding academic performance and community service. We hope our scholarships will enable these students to achieve their goals and succeed in their future endeavors. Applications for MCU's 2015 Scholarship Program are available at the Yonkers branch on 38 S. Broadway, and on MCU's website.
The deadline for submitting applications is Jan. 31, 2015. MCU will hold a special awards reception in the spring of 2015 to recognize the eight $5,000 scholarship winners.
