Scholarships available to area students

— The Ticonderoga Federal Credit Union is again offering local high school seniors the opportunity to win several scholarships toward tuition at a two or four-year accredited college.

TFCU student members will be competing with high school students from credit unions statewide for $1,000 Credit Union Association of New York awards. In addition, they will be competing regionally within the Adirondack District for a $500 scholarship, and locally among TFCU members for $500 scholarships. Three $500 TFCU scholarships were awarded in 2012.

To be eligible, students must be college-bound high school seniors at the time of application, attending college for the first time in the fall of 2013 and members of the Ticonderoga Federal Credit Union.

Applicants will be judged based upon their academic achievements, extracurricular and community activities and the quality of a written essay. Applications will be judged by representatives of the New York State Credit Union League in Albany and winners will be announced in the second quarter of 2013.

Applications are available at Ticonderoga Federal Credit Union's home office located at 1178 NYS Rt. 9N, Ticonderoga and at their branch locations at 43 Meacham St., Port Henry and 7519 Court St., Elizabethtown.

Applications and instructions may also be printed from the credit union’s website. Visit http://www.tfcunow.com to download a 2013 application.

Applications must be returned to any TFCU office, ATTN: Pamela Nolan, no later than Jan. 18, 2013.

For more information, visit a TFCU office or contact a member service representative at 585-6725.
