Attention college-bound seniors: Apply for a Suffolk Federal scholarship!
Suffolk Federal is now offering local high-school seniors a chance to win scholarships for college. Suffolk Federal will award scholarships of $1,500 each to ten young deserving members. One scholarship winner will also receive an additional $2,500 scholarship provided by the LT Michael P. Murphy Memorial Scholarship Foundation, which Suffolk Federal will match for a total of $5,000.
To be eligible, students must be high-school seniors attending two- or four-year accredited educational institutions for the first time in the fall of 2017. They must also be a member of Suffolk Federal.* Transcripts submitted to Suffolk Federal must be 'official' (signed by the student's Guidance Counselor, stamped with the school seal, and submitted in a sealed envelope).
Applicants will be judged based upon their academic achievements, extracurricular and community activities as well as the quality of their written essay. Last year, Suffolk Federal awarded $20,000 in scholarships!

To apply, complete the
scholarship application form, and send directly to Estelle Desilier at, or call 631.204.3119 x8369. Application deadline is December 30, 2016.
*If students are related to a member they are eligible to apply, however if they are selected they must have an account with Suffolk Federal prior to the awards ceremony.
