(Rochester, N.Y.) – Ukrainian FCU (UFCU) is offering high school seniors a chance to win scholarships for college. UFCU is participating in the New York Credit Union Association’s statewide credit union college scholarship program, which provides credit union members with scholarships. In 2021, scholarships awarded ranged from $500 to $1,500.
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 2022. They must also be members of UFCU or another participating New York credit union.
