Westerly Community CU Offering $6,500 in Scholarships to Local High School Seniors

Westerly Community Credit Union announces they will be awarding $5000 in scholarships to local high school seniors graduating this school year.  They are offering scholarships for students attending college or a trade/industrial arts program.

The Joseph N. Cugini Memorial College Scholarship will be awarded to a graduating High School Senior attending a two or four-year college or university.  This scholarship was established to honor the many years of dedicated service by Joseph N. Cugini to the Westerly Community Credit Union. After 40 years of service, Cugini retired as President/CEO and Chairperson of the Board of Directors. His work was legendary in the Credit Union movement: with the Credit Union National Association, the Rhode Island Credit Union League, and the World Council of Credit Unions. This scholarship honors his many accomplishments achieved during his tenure at the Credit Union.  

The Robert M. Bewlay Memorial College Scholarship will be awarded to a graduating High School Senior who will be attending a two or four-year college or university upon graduation.  This scholarship was established to honor Robert M. Bewlay’s dedication and service to the Westerly Community Credit Union. As Vice President of the Credit Union for 35 years, Bewlay was instrumental in implementing the computer system and technology utilized by the Credit Union. 

Two Westerly Community Credit Union College Scholarships will be awarded to graduating High School Seniors who will be attending a two or four-year college or university upon graduation. 

The Westerly Community Credit Union Trade/Industrial Arts Scholarships will be awarded to a graduating High School Senior who will be attending an accredited Trades/Industrial Arts Program upon graduation. Examples of Credentialed Certified Programs can be found listed on the application. 

The Westerly Community Credit Union is also proud to sponsor the Cooperative Credit Union Association College Scholarship Program.  Each participating Credit Union will submit their top three applications to the Cooperative Credit Union Association for final review and consideration of a $1500 scholarship award.  Applicants will be evaluated on a variety of criteria including the students’ academic performance, financial need, extracurricular activities, and the quality and content of an essay that addresses the applicant’s intended major field of study and career goals.
