College Scholarship Program

Now Accepting College Scholarship Applications

Saratoga’s Credit Union 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 and may range 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 these simple steps:

  1. Complete the attached scholarship application form. Please type or print clearly, and use only the space provided on the form to answer the questions. Other than where specified on the application form, no attachments, resumes, pictures or other materials of any kind should be submitted or used to answer the questions.
  2. You and your parent or guardian must sign the Certification and Release Authorization on the back page of the application form.
  3. Submit your signed application directly to your credit union by January 10, 2020, along with:
    • High school transcript documenting your GPA for grades 9-11
    • SAT/PSAT/ACT transcript
    • Typed essay response

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

  • Member of Saratoga’s 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 2020.

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