CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR 2017 COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIP WINNERS!
With 180 community-minded students vying for a scholarship, it was a challenge to only select 45 winners! This year, Charter Oak awarded $90,000 in scholarships - $2,000 per recipient – which is a record amount for our Credit Union!
We would like to thank all of the applicants for their dedication to the community. At such a young age, many of the applicants will head off to college having made a lasting difference within their school, town, or community at large. Scholarship recipients should forward their college information directly to CharterOakMarketing@cofcu.com (college name, address, city, state, zip, student I.D. #, etc.). Scholarship checks will be mailed directly to the college. Scholarship applications will be made available again in January 2018.
Charter Oak also gives back to the community by promoting financial education and awareness. Our two high school branches (located at Killingly High School in Dayville and Robert E. Fitch Senior High School in Groton) employ students interested in careers in financial service, and encourage students to start saving for the future.
