We like to recognize and reward hard work, dedication and a hunger for further education.
Maria Fanelli Levine, Sun Federal Accounting Manager for 13 years, was a shining example of our mission: People Caring About People. Though Maria is no longer with us, she continues to care for and serve our members through the Maria Fanelli Levine Memorial Trust Scholarship. Each year her trustees present a scholarship opportunity to members or their children who are qualified high school seniors or current college students.
This year we have transformed our scholarship selection process! After submitting entries, applicants will be selected for our Top 5 Finalist round and will then be asked to compose a 1,000 or less word essay answering a question that will be revealed at the time of being notified. Top 5 Finalists will also be invited to attend our annual meeting.
We are asking applicants to submit a 60 second – 2 ½ minute video answering the following question:
Pick one of the five fundamentals* of credit unions and use it to convince your best friend why it’s better to use a credit union than any other kind of financial institution.
*Five fundamentals of all credit unions: cooperative business model, non-profit, democratically controlled (one member, one vote), member-owned, with a board of directors comprised of its member-owners.
Our Award Amounts are as follows:
1st - $2,000
