Each year, 20 college-bound students will receive $1,000 to help cover the cost of higher education. This scholarship program was created to honor Frank Price Cunningham and Helen Shipman Cunningham’s long-standing and dedicated service to the credit union.
Here are the details:
- To be eligible, students (or their parent/guardian) must be a Firstmark member in good standing.
- The funds can be used at any academically accredited two- or four-year college or university.
- Five scholarships are reserved for students who plan to enter the education field.
