A Better Education for a Better Future
The Dorothy J. Sullivan Scholarship Program
Dutch Point Credit Union offers the DJS Scholarship Program to applaud the exemplary accomplishments of our members and to support their continued education and training beyond high school.
The Dorothy J. Sullivan Scholarship was initiated to honor and recognize the vast accomplishments made by Dorothy Sullivan during her 43-year career at Dutch Point. Her support of higher education opportunities led to the creation of this scholarship and continues the credit union's commitment to help deserving students with their education and future.
Dutch Point Credit Union will award up to five $1,000 one-time scholarships to provide students with financial assistance toward post-secondary education.
In order to qualify for scholarship, student must be the primary member of his or her own account at Dutch Point Credit Union. Applicant's account must be in good standing. Must be a graduating or graduated High School student or equivalent and accepted as a full-time freshman to an accredited 2 or 4 year University or College.
Judging is based on academic achievement (GPA, scholastic honors and awards), extracurricular activities, work experience and the written essay. The essay is judged on content, creativity and clarity. Additionally, grammatical and spelling errors may disqualify your entry. Scholarship winners will be notified personally by June 1, 2013. Non-winners will not be contacted. Winners are asked to submit a photo for publication in our membership newsletter. Awards are presented in the student's name and will be awarded at a credit union ceremony.
One Dutch Point Credit Union employee child and four credit union members will be selected. If there are no DPCU employee child applications, a fifth scholarship will be awarded to a credit union member. The credit union reserves the right to issue fewer scholarships, contingent on applications received.
Note: Financial need of the applicant and the income of the applicant's family are not factors considered in applicant evaluations. Winners are responsible for any income or taxes that may result.
