2018 Scholarship Program

Rome FCU Now Accepting College Scholarship Applications

Rome FCU is offering college-bound high school seniors the opportunity to compete for statewide college scholarships through the New York Credit Union Association’s Scholarship Program. Scholarships will be awarded ranging from $500 to $1,500 and may be used at a two- or four-year accredited educational institution.

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

¹. Stop in at Rome FCU to request a scholarship application form, or visit to download an electronic application. If the student is not a member of Rome FCU, he/she can request a membership packet as well. (All scholarship applicants are required to be members of a participating New York credit union.)

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 Rome FCU no later than January 4, 2019.

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

  • members of Rome Federal Credit Union;
  • 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 2019.

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