2018–2019 Frank Price Cunningham & Helen Shipman Cunningham Scholarship

Firstmark Credit Union is pleased to award $20,000 in scholarships!

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. To be eligible, you (or your parent/guardian) must be a Firstmark member in good standing.

Here are the details::

  • Scholarships are awarded based on academic achievement: top 15% of the graduating class, GPA, and SAT and/or ACT scores. Plus, you’ll be asked to write two really short essays.
  • The funds can be used at any two- or four-year college or university as long as it is academically accredited.
  • Because we were founded by educators, we reserve 25% of our scholarships each year for students who plan to become a teacher.
  • Firstmark employees, Board Members and their families are not eligible.

Applications are open through December 31, 2018. Recipients will be notified by April 30, 2019.
