Empower Federal Credit Union offering local students chance to win scholarships

SYRACUSE, NY (November 4, 2020) — Empower Federal Credit Union is offering local high school seniors a chance to win scholarships for college. Empower is participating in the New York Credit Union Association’s statewide credit union college scholarship program, which provides credit union members with scholarships. In 2020, scholarships awarded ranged from $250 to $1,750.

To be eligible, students must be high school seniors attending two- or four-year accredited educational institutions for the first time in the fall of 2021. They must also be members of Empower Federal Credit Union or another participating New York credit union.

Students/applicants will be competing against other credit union members from across the state. Applicants will be judged based upon academic achievements, extracurricular and community activities and the quality of written essays. Last year, the New York Credit Union Association awarded $30,000 in scholarships to 48 students through the program. In addition, Empower Federal Credit Union awarded $11,000 to 11 local students.
