Each year, Great Erie awards two local high school seniors with $500 scholarships to help finance their college educations. The students, who must be credit union members, are chosen based on their outstanding academic and extracurricular achievements.
Charlotte Ash Community Leader Scholarship: This award recognizes a student who exhibits strong leadership abilities and commitment to the community. This scholarship is named in honor of founding member Charlotte Ash.
New York Credit Union Association (NYCUA) Statewide Scholarship Program: Recipients are selected based on academic and extracurricular achievements, community involvement, and leadership roles.
Great Erie Federal Credit Union is a full-service credit union with New York branches in Orchard Park and East Aurora.
