Academic Awards

Scholarships, Grants & Community Service Awards

At School Systems Federal Credit Union we believe that higher education is an integral part of success. That's why we are proud to offer a variety of academic awards that are available to members and/or family members of School Systems FCU, as well as Community Service Awards for students in each of our member School Districts.

The availability and funding for these awards are made possible through our members' use of their VISA Credit Cards and the New York Credit Union Association. Income earned by the credit union through the use of School Systems FCU VISA and VISA Gold cards is distributed to the scholarship and grant fund.
