 CHARTER OAK WILL AWARD $90,000 IN COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIPS

45 Students Will Benefit From Credit Union’s Scholarship Program

 

Waterford, CT – January 16, 2018 – For the second consecutive year, Charter Oak Federal Credit Union will be awarding $90,000 in college scholarships this spring to students in New London and Windham counties.

The credit union will accept scholarship applications now through Thursday, March 15, 2018. Applications must be submitted electronically, and can be found at https://charteroak.org/content/scholarship-program. Applicants must be members of the credit union; non-members can visit any branch location or call 860.446.8085 or 800.962.3237 to become a member, and to become eligible for a $2,000 scholarship.

A total of 45 scholarships will be awarded. The scholarship program rewards students who are involved in their local communities through volunteer activities and who maintain a strong grade point average. The credit union prides itself on community involvement, and has awarded more than $2 million since 2009 to college-bound students, non-profits and community organizations.

This unique scholarship program will reward at least one high school senior from each eligible high school in New London and Windham counties with a $2,000 scholarship. Most high school student applicants will essentially be competing against their peers, rather than competing with students throughout eastern Connecticut.

Current college students are welcome to apply; their applications will be reviewed and scholarships will be awarded at Charter Oak’s discretion. All scholarship recipients will be recognized during a private reception this spring at Charter Oak’s headquarters in Waterford.

Charter Oak is eastern Connecticut’s largest credit union with assets of $1.05 billion as of September 30, 2017.

CHARTER OAK NAMED ‘BEST CREDIT UNION’ IN ANNUAL SURVEY

Commercial Record’s 2017 Reader Survey Taps Charter Oak for Top Rating

 

            Waterford, CT – January 11, 2018 – Charter Oak Federal Credit Union has been named the Best Credit Union for the second consecutive year in The Commercial Record’s annual reader survey.

 

            “It’s quite an honor to be chosen as the Best Credit Union in Connecticut for the second year in a row,” said Brian A. Orenstein, Charter Oak’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “This has been a great year for Charter Oak in terms of our growth and our financial strength,” he said. “I know that all of our employees have worked very hard to be the best, so it’s very rewarding to see that Connecticut’s banking and real estate profession strongly agree,” said Orenstein.

            The Commercial Record featured the “Best Of 2017” contest winners in its December issue, saying that thousands of votes were cast in the annual contest “and our readers had a lot of great things to say about your business and its position as a premier service provider to the real estate and finance industries in Connecticut.”

            The annual survey by The Commercial Record highlights the best providers of services and goods in both the banking and real estate professions across Connecticut. Since early September, the magazine has conducted an online survey of its readers through its website at commercialrecord.com, as well as promoting its annual survey through ads in the magazine and via email to thousands of readers and customers of The Commercial Record.

 

            Charter Oak won the top Gold Award in the Best of 2017 Survey. The annual Commercial Record survey asks readers to vote in three categories: Gold, Silver, and Bronze.

            During 2017, Charter Oak also was named Best Credit Union in several other contests. This past spring, Charter Oak was voted Best Credit Union by readers of The Day newspaper as well as Best Credit Union in the “Best of Norwich Magazine” contest. Charter Oak was also honored as Best Credit Union in the “Best of Northeastern Connecticut” contest featured in the September issue of Norwich Magazine.

            Charter Oak is eastern Connecticut’s largest credit union with assets of $1.05 billion as of September 30, 2017 and 16 branches across New London and Windham counties.
