Compass FCU to Award $14,000 in Scholarships; Applications Due by April 12

OSWEGO, NY (January 2, 2024) – Compass Federal Credit Union is again eager to give back to the community by way of scholarships, with $14,000 set to be distributed to help support members’ higher education.

A total of seven graduating seniors in 2024 will be selected to earn a variety of scholarship amounts this spring.  The Compass scholarship committee will select two applicants to receive $4,000 scholarships, one applicant to receive a $2,000 scholarship and four more to receive $500 scholarships.

Applicants for these scholarships must be a 2024 high school graduating senior and a member of Compass FCU.

In addition, Compass recognizes that students already engaged in post-secondary education, also benefit from scholarship support.  With this in mind, Compass is offering two $1,000 Continuing Education scholarships to members who have already graduated from high school and are pursuing additional education.

Applicants for the Continuing Education scholarships have to be a two-year member of Compass FCU.

Applications for all scholarships are available online at under the Services/Other Services tab.  Applications must be submitted to Compass no later than 5 p.m. on Friday, April 12.
