college scholarship money

Adirondack Regional FCU is again awarding 10 scholarships—$6,000 in all—to college-bound high school seniors from Clinton, Essex, Franklin, and St. Lawrence counties.

The Donald DeVirgeles Memorial Scholarships, named for a former board member and president of Adirondack Regional FCU, recognizes students who have demonstrated academic success, financial need, and community or extracurricular involvement. Two students will receive $1,000 scholarships, while eight more will receive $500 each.

To qualify, applicants must have been accepted into a two- or four-year college and have a GPA of 2.7 or higher. Applications must include a high school transcript, financial aid package, and an essay responding to the following:

  • Tell us about yourself, what makes you passionate about the field you’ve chosen to study and how this scholarship can help you succeed.
  • Describe your academic achievements, community involvement, and volunteer activities.

Students and their families do not need to belong to the credit union to apply.
