2024 Scholarship Program

Buffalo Conrail FCU is proud to announce a scholarship opportunity for college-bound students! In partnership with New York Credit Union Association (NYCUA), we are opening applications for high school seniors attending two or four year accredited educational institutions as well as vocational or trade schools in 2024. The program is designed to provide funds that would be used toward tuition, room and board, books, and school supplies.

Just last year, NYCUA awarded $26,250 in college scholarships, ranging from $500 to $1,500 to 45 students. At Buffalo Conrail, we believe in the boundless potential of our young scholars. This scholarship is more than financial support; it’s a belief in your dreams and an investment in our community’s future. We encourage all eligible students to apply and wish them success in their academic pursuits.
