HIGHTSTOWN, N.J. - It's that time of year again, the season that NJCUL's Youth Involvement Board (YIB) kicks off its credit union scholarship program, giving credit unions throughout the state an opportunity to participate in a statewide scholarship program.
The YIB will award six scholarships to credit union members seeking post-secondary education in the amount of the $1,000 each. Three scholarships will be awarded to students attending 4-year colleges or universities and three scholarships will be awarded to students attending technical schools or community colleges.
Each credit union will be categorized by its district (North, Central and South). This will give more opportunity to all the credit unions in each district to produce a scholarship winner. The goal of the scholarship program is to be able to aid as many students as possible.
If you would like to take advantage of this great opportunity to help your young members, fill out the Participation Agreement found at http://www.njcul.org/yib-scholarship.aspx and return it with a check for the appropriate amount to NJCUL by January 31, 2012. Please use the fee chart in the Participation Agreement to determine your credit union's investment.
NJCUL's YIB also has materials available for credit unions' use to promote the scholarship program. The YIB logo, a newsletter/Web site article, and a flyer/poster are available at http://www.njcul.org/yib-scholarship.aspx.
If you have any questions regarding the program, please contact Marissa Anema at firstname.lastname@example.org or 800-792-8861 ext. 117.
