Dannemora FCU is participating in New York Credit Union Association's 2024 Statewide College Scholarship program!

Dannemora Federal Credit Union is proud to participate in this program. The NYCUA College Scholarship program is an exciting example of DFCU and NYCUA’s “people helping people" philosophy in action. 


Thanks to the 69 credit unions that participated in 2022, the New York Credit Union Association awarded $33,750 in college scholarships to 45 bright, hardworking young credit union members. The scholarships range from $500 to $1500. The recipients were the top scorers among the over 750 applications submitted by credit unions across the state.  Students were scored on their academic performance, extracurricular activities, honors, community service, leadership and writing.

In addition to NYCUA's program, our member applications will be automatically enrolled into DFCU's new scholarship program.

DFCU is happy to announce ten (10) Scholarships are available paid out in full for a new grand total of $15,000.00 in scholarships.

Scholarships will be awarded as follows:

            •  1 to 5 will receive a $2000.00 Scholarship Award.
