Horizons Federal Credit Union is offering local high school seniors a chance to win scholarships for college. Horizons Federal Credit Union is participating in the New York Credit Union Association’s statewide credit union college scholarship program, which provides credit union members with scholarships. In 2019, scholarships awarded ranged from $500 to $1,250.

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 2020. They must also be members of Horizons 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 $21,500 in scholarships to 30 students through the program. In addition, Horizons Federal Credit Union awarded $250 to one local student.
