Are you heading to college or have a child attending?
Aspire’s Salvatore Perricone Scholarship awards $750 to several members that are either enrolled in or have been accepted to a full-time college or university. This scholarship can be used to help pay for tuition, books, or other college expenses.
If you’re worried about yet another essay, you don’t need to – no essay is required to apply. Applicants only need to submit a completed application, an official transcript indicating the cumulative GPA (yes, you will be judged on this) and proof of full-time fall registration.
How did an Aspire scholarship end up with the name Salvatore Perricone? Back before we were known as Aspire FCU, the scholarship was called the “FAA Eastern Region Federal Credit Union (FAAERFCU) Scholarship”. The name was changed in 1998 to honor the passing of Salvatore Perricone, a previous director. Our Board of Directors felt that this would be a great way to remember and thank him for all his contributions over the years.
