NECU’s 2019 Scholarship Program

For dreams near or far – get a jumpstart on your future with a scholarship from NECU.

The Northeast Credit Union Scholarship Program recognizes dedicated, passionate student members for their community involvement and commitment to academics while supporting them through their next chapter of life: college! It’s an exciting, challenging, and rewarding experience that will help form our future leaders.

We understand the challenges that students and their families are facing when it comes to paying for college. In an effort to help make college more affordable for our members, the credit union has made $40,000 available to help and encourage students to further their education and assist with the costs. We're honored to be making this investment in the students' futures.

Please note: These scholarships are available to our student members who meet the eligibility guidelines; the student applying must be a member in good standing for one or more years prior to applying. If you or someone you know will be applying in 2020 for scholarships – Open a Student Account with NECU today!
