PSFCU REWARDS “THE BEST & BRIGHTEST”
WITH $300,000 IN COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIPS

 
Nearly 200 Students Receive Financial Aid from Ethnic Credit Union

Nearly 200 Polish-American students have been given a helping hand with their college education, thanks to the Polish & Slavic Federal Credit Union’s annual scholarship program that recently awarded approximately $300,000 to worthy recipients.
 
In a dual ceremony held last week in Brooklyn, the ethnic credit union handed out a total of $296,000 in scholarships to 191 high school and college students. All recipients are from the New York area.
 
The June 28 ceremony at the Union’s headquarters in Brooklyn honored 81 recent high-school graduates, who received either $2,000 or $1,000 each to continue their education. The following day, the PSFCU awarded 110 scholarships to students already enrolled in college. Ten students each received $5,000 scholarships; 50 students were each awarded $2,000 scholarships; and the remaining 50 were each granted
$1,000 scholarships.


School Students and PSFCU Representatives

All scholarship recipients are PSFCU members.  High-school candidates were evaluated on their academic records and commitment to community service. College students were also evaluated on their participation in extracurricular activities, essays and teacher references.
 
“We regard this essential program as one of our most important initiatives supporting the Polish-American community,” said Krzysztof Matyszczyk, Chairman of the Board of the PSFCU. “These young people are the true future of our community, and we’re extremely proud to be able to give them a helpful start in reaching their goals. I’m confident that these wonderful students will always retain the feeling of pride
in their roots.”
 
This marks the sixth year the PSFCU has singled out “The best & brightest” Polish-American students in the tri-state area through its scholarship program.  Since the program’s inception, the credit union has awarded more than $1 million in scholarships to its young members to help defray the cost of higher education.


College Students

“This really is an unprecedented program being put on by a credit union.  It’s an incredibly satisfying endeavor that benefits so many of our members – today and years from now,” said Mr. Bogdan Chmielewski, PSFCU’s CEO. “Providing hope and opportunity for the next generation of members is what we’re hoping to accomplish with this effort.”

Currently, there are nearly 9,000 PSFCU members between 18 and 25 years old. 
 
This year, one PSFCU scholarship recipient, Michal Ilewski, was also honored by the New York State Credit Union League (NYSCUL), which awarded him one of its 22 annual scholarships, a rare distinction coveted by 1,458 young New York credit union members.

About the PSFCU
The Polish & Slavic Federal Credit Union was founded in 1976 by a group of Polish immigrants to help other ethnic Poles obtain mortgages. It currently has 10 branches in New York and New Jersey, possesses an Operations Center in Fairfield, NJ, and provides ATM services at Doylestown, PA. With $1.1 billion in assets and 70,000 members, PSFCU is the largest ethnic credit union in the country.
