November 19, 2013 Leave a comment

LES PEOPLE’S FCU is now accepting scholarship applications:

In an effort to help further the education of local high-school seniors, LES People’s FCU is offering two types of scholarships that students can benefit from:

 The statewide credit union scholarship program.- provides credit union members with $500 or $1,000 scholarships. Students/applicants will be competing against other credit union members from across the state. Last year, this program awarded $24,500 in scholarships to 37 students across New York.

 The Mary Spink college scholarship program.- provides local students/applicants two $500 scholarships. Students/applicants do not need to be members of the credit union.

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

  1. Stop in at any LES People’s FCU branch to request a scholarship application form, or visit LES People’s FCU website to download an electronic application. Members of LES People’s FCU only need to apply for the state credit union scholarship program and their applications will be considered for the Mary Spink scholarship automatically. To become a member visit us or request a membership packet at our branch.

  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 LES People’s FCU no later than January 31, 2014.

There is no fee for submitting an application, but applicants MUST be:

• 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 2014.

In early spring, applications will be judged against other submissions statewide. Winners will be announced in April.

For more information about this scholarship program, contact LESPFCU by calling 212-529-8197 or emailing aportada@lespfcu.org.
