TrailNorth Federal Credit Union is excited to announce the details of our Annual Scholarship Program, offered in partnership with the New York Credit Union Association. College-bound high school seniors can win a scholarship between $500-$1,250 through the program.  In 2023, we awarded $1,500 in college scholarships to three high school seniors.  Additionally, one senior was awarded $500 from the New York Credit Union Association as a Statewide winner and $500 from the Adirondack Chapter of the New York Credit Union Association. 

Scholarship winners will be chosen by the New York Credit Union Association.
